First Grade Footnotes

Florence Elementary, Week 19, January 19, 2015

Dear First Grade Parents,

Thank you to all of our Western Day volunteers! It was a fun day!

Valentine’s Day is coming soon! Our class party will be on Friday, February 13. Students will need to bring a decorated shoebox with an opening in the top with his/her name clearly written on it. Please send by Tues., Feb. 10. If your child would like to bring valentines for classmates, please be sure that there is one for every student, and please do not address the envelopes. This makes it so much easier to hand them out to their friends. Thanks! :)
