The border used on the cover of the Class Handbook is part of a border set that you can purchase separately in my TpT store, called Mixed Doodle Borders. If you purchase this bundle email me with a picture of yourself, I will custom create a center sign with your picture on it, instead of mine AND if you tell me 4 center signs that you would like, I will custom create them for you. The center signs fit into a standard blue pocket chart. I will be continually adding items to this bundle and will notify you so you can re-load the new additions. Please leave comments if you like what's in this bundle or feedback on how I can make this bundle even better. If you have any questions about anything in this product, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I tried to download your Bundle Bonanza more than for times and it continues to tell me that the download will complete in 10 minutes. I can't figure out what the problem is. Will you please send the document to my email address so I can begin to plan for the beginning of school. Thanks
TpT gets VERY clogged at night, not sure the TpT server can handle all the purchasing power on some nights. Mornings and afternoons are always better for uploading (sellers) and downloading (buyers). Please try again this morning and if you still can't get I'll email it to you if you provide me with your email.
Actually, I'm working on a set of CC parent letters, so I'm just going to leave that one as is, which, in the Class Handbook for Parents, is a lot about our day, schedules, procedures, behavior and curriculum (the curriculum part is explained in parent friendly language, but that's only about 3 pages) if you can hold out for the CC parent letters, I think it's more what you're looking for.

I just submitted this under ratings/comments, but I am having trouble locating the 30 mini-lessons for Readers' Workshop that were listed in the Product Overview. Could you point me in the right direction? Thanks!
Phew! Thank you for the feedback...I really appreciate it! Have fun! Will be uploading Word Chunk Bubble Posters for Word Wall Word Instruction today. Thanks for your business.

I am having the same problem as vrozzi. I cannot download it. It says "invalid file." Any suggestions? I am looking forward to seeing it!
***thanks for your response, I will try again to download another day and then if that doesn't work I will have you email it. Thanks!!***
I have reported this bug to TpT. The system is going through an overhaul right now and there are a lot of bugs. I apolgize. Hopefully it will be resolved in the next couple of days. I can verify your transaction and email it to you if you'd prefer. Again, I'm so sorry for the trouble.

Hi, Jen. I'm having trouble downloading the bundle. I've installed the unzipping program twice, but still no luck. Do you have any other suggestions?
Does it say "ZIPReader" on your desktop? Windows or Mac. Don't fret, we'll get through this! :-) if all else fails, I'll email you the bundle after I verify your transaction. If you email me at email@example.com, I will email you the bundle unzipped. Does that work?

Is there a way I can just purchase your parent volunteer interest survey? I am in need of a survey to have concrete ideas so that my maternity sub will easily be able to manage my volunteers while I'm gone. I am searching for ideas and would love to see yours. Is there a way to make this one item available for purchase?
