Game Collections December 2nd – December 13th

**We are asking each child in Hardy Oak to participate in the December sister school collection. We will be collecting NEW board games. One NEISD SVSA hour will be given for your donation. Our hope is that every child at Camelot be gifted a NEW game to enjoy with their family this holiday season! If every Hardy Oak Student brings one game, we will be able to achieve this for the Camelot families. **

To try to give each Camelot student an age appropriate gift, please consider sending in these suggested games by grade:

Kinder/PPCD/RSG/ALE- Candy Land

1st Grade- Chutes & Ladders

2nd Grade- Connect 4

3rd Grade-Trouble

4th Grade-Sorry

5th Grade- Monopoly

The Class that donates the most games will receive a PIZZA PARTY in class!

Thank you Hardy Oak for your generosity and compassion!

All of the Games and the Breakfast food items will be delivered
to Camelot by the Student Council in December.
