Mrs. Eske's Team: Building Leaders

4th Grade Newsletter * Week of Feb. 8-12

From the Desk of Mrs. Eske:


Happy Valentine's Day!!

Our Class Valentine Party is Friday, Feb. 12th from 2:30-3:15. Students will be exchanging valentines, enjoying yummy treats, and playing games! If your child does plan to exchange valentines...Friday is the day in which they will need to bring in their decorated box. I will also have while paper sacks available, to decorate, for any student(s) unable to bring in a box. A class list was sent home this past Friday.

Mid-Quarter Grades will be sent home with students on Friday, Feb. 12th. These need to be signed and returned by Tuesday, Feb. 16th. If you have any questions regarding your child's grades please email me at, or contact me at 523-3929.

Valentine Grams

This week (February 8-12) our student council will be selling valentine grams to support our Leadership Program. There are 2 types of grams for sale: valentine grams with a cherry tootsie sucker are 50 cents a piece or you could send a valentine gram with a plush monkey for $2 each. These will be delivered to students on Friday, February 12.

Thank you!
