Valentine's Day is Friday, February 14th. This is the only 'allowed' party in our school. We will have our party from 12:30-1:30. I need your help! Please click on the attached link and sign up for something to send in. Thanks for helping make this a fun day for the kiddos.
A list with names will be sent home by the end of this week so your child can work on Valentines for classmates.
