April 12th: Family Tile Painting and Game Night

FAMILY TILE PAINTING and GAME NIGHTTile Tuesday, April 12th at 5pm
Have you ever wondered how your family could be a part of our wonderful tile mural on the wall near the office? Well, now is your chance! Join us for Family Tile Painting and Game Night on Tuesday, April 12th! We will once again be painting tiles and playing games in the auditorium, with the help of Color Me Mine ceramic shop.

STEP 1: Purchase Your Tiles

Please fill out the form attached, and send to the office no later than Friday, April 8. Can’t attend? It’s ok! If you cannot attend the tile painting night, you can still order your tiles and paint them (on your own) at the Color Me Mine shop in Beverly Hills until April 30th. Color Me Mine will be available to help with color choices, and to give directions.
Because we have to pre-pay for the materials, we ask that you please pre-order to be sure you get your tiles! We will have a few extra tiles on-hand the night of the event. Tiles are $25 each. Or, you can buy 4 tiles for $100 and get one free AND get a free pizza. That’s 5 tiles for $100 + a free pizza (a $35 savings).

Here’s how you can order your tiles:

  • OR with a form (please deposit in Tile Night Box in the Office by April 8, 2016) Click here to download form: FAMILY TILE PAINTING NIGHT
  • OR at the Friends of Laurel Table on Thursdays and Fridays after school

Step 2: Come to the Family Tile Painting and Game Night Event on April 12th

  • No need to sign up, just come on over to Auditorium at 5pm
  • Snacks and beverages will be provided or your can order a pizza for $10.
  • Everything will be supplied for your children.
  • It will take as long as your child needs to leave their creative mark at Laurel School.

Please fill out and return the order form by April 8, 2016.
