Attention Kinder Parents: Minimum Day on December 9th: Pickup is at 11:35am... Pick-ups are tough on Minimum Days!   But, we have an option for you.  Sign your child up for “Kinder Krafts.”  Your child will be picked up by a parent chaperone, brought to Room 45, fed pizza and snacks, and will participate in craft and building activities. The best part is that you’ll be helping Pacific earn money while you get some extra time!   Note: this party is ONLY open to kinder students.  This event will take place on Monday, December 9th from 11:35am-12:40pm.  Click HERE to sign up.
