To prepare to the CPS-level event we will have a board decorating party next Wednesday.  Just turn in your signed forms (the 2 white pages in your packet- you keep the green pages) and mark on your orange slip if you need me to give you a board. 
I will have some arts and crafts supplies, but bring any special supplies you might want to use.
