Exceptional Event

Sleepover Night

A sleepover is a great treat for kids. Many schools use such an event as the culminating activity of the school year. It makes a great cure for the Midwinter Blahs too. Plan movies, music, organized games, entertainers... plan whatever activities you and the students might enjoy. And don't expect too much sleep! In the a.m., parents might prepare a surprise breakfast in the cafeteria. Then it's time to send kids on their way with their memories -- and time for you to head home for some Zs.
