New Guest Policy Begins with Harvest Party on October 30th

In an effort to promote a safe and fun environment for our students, Watson Elementary will be implementing a new policy for guests wishing to attend classroom parties. Beginning with the Harvest Party on October, 30th guests will be limited to parents/guardians who either:
1.) Provided a treat for the party
2.) Signed up to volunteer to work the party
Due to the lack of room in the classroom and the number of people wishing to participate, a limit is needed in order to promote a safe and fun environment for students, staff, and approved volunteers.
Watson Elementary has two opportunities, Glow Night and Bingo Night (1/29/16), during the school year that invite ALL who wish to participate to get involved. These two events are open to all who wish to enjoy a “night out” with their Watson student(s).
Guests who show up the day of a party, and are NOT on the party volunteer list, will not be permittd to enter the building. This is in place for the safety and protection of our students. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
