Letter Regarding Sleepover (Sent home 5/18)

May 18, 2011

Dear Sixth-Grade Parents,

We are excited to announce that we will be having a sleepover on June 10th for sixth-grade students.  The purpose of the sleepover is to have a chance to celebrate our class community.  The sleepover will begin after school at 3:30pm.  Pickup the following morning will be between 8am and 9am.  

We are asking students to adhere to some basic expectations in order to participate in the sleepover.  These expectations are the same expectations we have had since the beginning of the year.  They are as follows:

1.  Be nice.
2.  Turn in all assignments.
3.  Come to school on time.
4.  Bring all supplies to class.
5.  Earn passing grades.
6.  Put a proper heading on all assignments.

These six expectations are to ensure the success of our students.  Students who don’t meet one of the expectations will have the chance to write an essay for our consideration.  Students will be informed of their participation status every week on Fridays to provide ample time to meet these expectations.  Essays requesting an exception need to be turned in by Monday, June 6th.  We will make the final decision based on the circumstances and the essay.  While our intention is for every student is to meet the six requirements, some things may arise that are out of the child’s control, and we will consider exceptions based on the essays on a case-by-case basis.  

We do anticipate some minor costs- such as dinner, snacks, games, breakfast, etc.  If you would like to contribute towards the sleepover, we will be accepting small donations!  

Students should bring a pillow, pajamas, a sleeping bag or blanket, and any games or music they’d like to share with the class.  We will be providing dinner on June 10th, and a light breakfast on June 11th.  

Attached you will find the permission slip for the event.  If your child has any food allergies or special needs, please inform us.  

We are greatly looking forward to spending some quality time with our students to culminate a positive, enjoyable, and productive school year.  It has been a pleasure teaching your children this year.
