Dear Families,

We will be taking a short break from our unit about bodies in order to celebrate Valentine's Day. We will return to our unit next week. Some highlights for this week will be sorting hearts, learning valentine vocabulary, describing hearts, and the party on Wednesday.

  • THANK YOU for all of the donations for our raffle basket that we have received. Our basket looks great!
  • Information about signing up for parent teacher conferences will be coming soon.

Have a great week!

~ Ms. Jackie, Mrs. Joyce, Mrs. Patrice
