Gr2 New Amsterdam Day !

Dear Families,

Just a quick reminder about New Amsterdam Day. It will be happening tomorrow, Friday, January 19th. We will be encouraging the students to dress like colonial children. Here are some examples of what the clothes of that time period looked like:

You do not need to go out and buy anything. You can use clothing that you have. For example, boys can cuff up their pants and wear high socks and a button down shirt. Girls can wear a dress or a long skirt and a bonnet if they have.

Thank you again for the generous donations. We can’t wait to post pictures for you to see our amazing day!

Have a great day!

Ms. Mathis and Ms. Anne
