Our Fantastic Class:
This list helps when sending out birthday invitations and Valentines. I ask that if you'd like birthday invitations distributed at school - then the whole class should be invited, (otherwise there are many tears and hurt feelings). If you can only invite a few - then please make prior arrangements to mail, email, or Bloomz message them directly. Thank you.
