Weekly News: February 9-13

News: 

I hope you enjoyed a relaxing three-day weekend with your families. We have another three-day weekend coming up this week, as there is no school on Monday, February 16th. 

We will be celebrating Valentine's Day together on Friday. Thank you so much for all of the Capri Sun boxes {and thank you to the parents who wrapped them!} These will be used as our Valentine's Mailboxes. If your child would like to make valentines for the class, a list of boys and girls names were sent home last week. This is great writing practice for your child. 

Continue to work on your community service projects. These will be due at the end of May. Please see our Community Service Tab for more information and feel free to email me if you have any questions.
