Valentine’s note

Dear Families,

Thursday, February 14 is Valentine’s Day and 1/2 day at school. There will be a Valentine’s Day party beginning at 10:30am until dismissal. Your child may wear pajamas to school on that day. If your child wishes to bring in Valentine’s cards for the class, they may. There are 26 students in the class. You may have your child address them as “To: My Friend” or they may personalize them.  The class list is below. You may also send in candy or treat bags to pass out.  Feel free to come in for the party, as there are also a few crafts planned.

Thank you so much for all of your help and support!
