We invite you and your family to bring a dish to share with other Valley View Cardinals on the evening of Open House. If you would like to, bring a dish that reflects an aspect of your family heritage. If you will, please print and fill out the attached ingredients card to post on your table so other Cardinals can adequately assess for any possible food allergies. Also, if you choose to bring a non-disposable container, be sure to label it clearly with your name so we can return it to you if you need to leave before your dish is empty.
You can download a printable PDF version of theingredients card here or make a copy of the Google-Docs version and type/print your own card here.
You can sign up for a dish to bring by adding your name and dish to the Sign-Up Genius page HERE:

We would love to have some parent volunteers help before, during, and after Open House. We need a few hands to help with set up, potluck maintenance, and clean-up . You can sign up to help out HERE.
During our Open House evening event, in addition to sharing food with friends and family, we invite you to our classrooms to see what we have been learning about ourselves and others. Visit your child's classroom and let him/her share the stories of our learning, and feel free to share stories of your own! We will also continue to post our learning journeys on our Activities page (see link above).
