FLOATING LAB FIELD TRIP THIS WEDNESDAY!

On Wednesday, February 10th we will be attending our Floating Lab field trip. All students must be at school by 7:45am, so that we can on the boat by 8:15am. We are still in need of parent volunteers. If you are interested, please sign up on the class wiki (the same sight you used to view pictures of 6th grade Camp).

Valentine's Day!

On February 12th, students will have an opportunity to celebrate Valentine’s Day in our classroom by exchanging cards. Because it is important to foster a sense of unity and friendship amongst each and every child in our classroom, we are asking that if your child wishes to pass out cards, that he/she make one out to every child (please reference the class list below).



We are also having a “Valentine Box” decorating contest. Students may decorate a shoebox (no larger, please) or small gift bag at home and bring it to the classroom on February 12th (or sooner). These will be used to collect their cards. Students have an opportunity to really get creative! They may use items around the house to decorate the box (buttons, pipe cleaners, magazine pictures, glitter, stickers, wrapping paper, foil, anything goes!) The following are categories for the contest and there may be more than one winner for each category:


Cupid’s Choice – Most Hearts

Hilarious Hearts – Silliest

Artful Artist – Most Creative

Considerably Colorful – Most Colorful

Natural Wonder – Best use of natural materials

Radically Recycled – best use of recycled materials

The Bill Gates Award – For the technically minded

Thoughtfully Thematic – Unique Theme (for example, hobby, movie, sports)

Wonderfully Whimsical – Most fanciful

That’s A Wrap – Most uniquely wrapped box

Crazy Cartoons – Drawn or cut out cartoons

You’re A Star – Shiniest


I have already explained all of this to students but wanted to keep you informed. Have fun!


PS: Thank you to the 2nd grade team at Solana Highlands for all of the AMAZING ideas!
