More normal party planning?
If last week’s party mom gone mad story made you break out in a cold sweat, I offer this calming alternative that came home on Wednesday from Drama Girl’s class:
Hello to all parents of Mr. Teacher’s Class!
We are getting ready for our Holiday Party. The time/day of our party is Thursday, December 20th from 9:15-10:15 AM. We will be having our planning meeting for this party next Wednesday, November 28th at 1:00 PM at [location]. We will be deciding upon a craft if needed, a snack, games and anything else necessary for the party. The parents scheduled for this party are: [3 moms -- it's always the moms]. All parents are welcome to join us at the planning meeting even if you are not attending the party. Everyone’s ideas are helpful!!! Please feel free to call if you have any questions. Thanks!
This is more more enthusiastic and welcoming than the other…although the planning time is still not very convenient. And interestingly enough the homeroom mom (excuse me, “contact parent”) who wrote this was one of the 3 parents selected to attend the festivities out of the random drawing. Hmm. Random…
But I have to love this more typical version because “party” was only capitalized once and a craft might not be necessary after all. Boy, that alone would drive the other party mom into therapy if she isn’t already there.
