From Emily Viehland, who is coordinating the Valentine’s Party and Spelling Bee:
Greetings! It’s time for the PALS Enrichment Valentine’s Day Party and Scripps Spelling Bee!
This event is open to ALL homeschooling families, so come one, come all, and bring your friends!
Wednesday, February 8th, 10:30 am to 1:30 pm at The Pittsburgh Project
10:30-noon: Crafts and games
10:30 until it ends: PALS 2nd Annual Scripps Spelling Bee
12-1: Potluck Lunch
1-1:30 Exchange Valentines
The craft activities will include the opportunity to decorate bags for collecting Valentines, among other fun things.
The spelling bee will take as long as it takes, but ought to be done by noon or so. If you’d like to receive the word lists to study for it, please do ask!
For the potluck, PALS is providing the main dishes, so please bring a side or a dessert.
If you are planning to attend, please RVSP to Emily Viehland: typhoon <dot> emily <at> gmail <dot> com. and indicate the number of children with you who will be participating in the Valentine’s exchange. We will announce the total number before the party, so that children know how many Valentines to bring.
Also please contact Emily if you have any questions about either the Spelling Bee or the rest of the day.
Finally, please sign up for a parent volunteer job through our Sign-up genius: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/409044aa4a82ba7f49-valentines
We’re looking forward to a fun-filled social day!
