Each sub will include chips and a drink (water, juice, or milk)

Send cash or check, payable to Assumption School in an envelope marked “Attention Cafeteria”.

*Please note that this is a special event and not a part of the normal lunch ticket process!  Therefore, the children who participate will not have their lunch ticket punched!

The children that do not return the forms will be able to eat the normal cafeteria offering of Chicken Nuggets that day, and will use their lunch ticket.

Come spend Monday after-school at Assumption creating one-of-a-kind objects working in clay. Students will learn to use simple tools and traditional hand-building techniques as well as ways to impress texture into the clay. They will also strengthen their color and design skills as we glaze our pieces.

Please return the attached form along with your check, for $78 to Peggy Davo, to the main office by Thursday, January 4th. All supplies are included and firing will be done in my studio. A portion of your check goes to the school. Thanks!
