This file contains a printable invitation to give to your students gifting them "A Day Off Of School At School" that includes a small explanation including to come in their pajamas.
For many years we gave our students pencils and erasers for Christmas, just to find them lying on the floor after they left. A few years ago we decided to make a new tradition that focused more on spending time with our students. We came up with “A Day Off of School...At School!” Students come in their jammies, we enjoy morning cartoons together, eat donuts, play games, and over all spend a memorable day together. The day before we give our students the postcards on pages 3 and 4 and send a quick email to the parents (in case the postcards don’t make it home). (For other printing options we included a card version on page 5.) It is a simple, fun, free way to create some Christmas spirit in your classroom. Enjoy!
