Reminder:

Our Valentine's Party will be tomorrow, February 12th at 3:45. We are resending a list of names for both 4th grade classes in the purple folder today. We have a total of 20 students. Our party will be with both classes combined. I asked last week for you to let me know if you were sending anything for refreshments and I heard back from two parents so I think we will have enough. However, if anyone would like to send anything else that would be fine but the students don't really eat a lot. They are more excited to open their valentines. Thank you for your help!

- Valentines Party is tomorrow, please make sure your child has their valentines for everyone in their class or the class as a whole. Check DOJO if you have any questions.
