Valentine's Day Message from Mrs. Ramos

A message from Mrs. Ramos…. With the Valentine’s Day parties coming up, please note a procedure we started last year at Wells. If you have more than one child at Wells, and you choose to attend one of our class parties during the year, Wells students are not allowed to attend the parties of their siblings. If you want to take your child home after their party, please feel free to do so. Just sign out in the front office. However, if you sign that child out, he or she may not attend the parties later in the day in other grade levels. These students have already had their party, and the classrooms are already crowded with parents. As always, if you have a younger sibling who does not attend Wells yet, he or she is welcome at our parties. Please direct any further questions to Mrs. Ramos at

Valentine Reminders

Please make sure that your child sends enough Valentine cards for every child in the class. Also, while your child is more than welcome to write each child's name on a card, he or she can certainly just sign his or her own name and distribute cards at random. It is often easier for the students to pass out cards when they are not having to match the names that they have written with the names on the bags. Either way is great!
