How About Sponsoring a Theme Day?
There are plenty of Fridays available in the new year for any TAG classes who would like to plan and sponsor a theme day.  Even if you've already planned a day, it's a great way to keep you kids engaged in promoting community and school spirit.  Have a look at the Zimbra calendar, pick a day, plan a theme, and let us know about it. Check out the list at the bottom of this post for theme day ideas.
