The deadline is less than 8 weeks away. The theme for this year is “The Kid Who Stood Out". Who is this kid? Boy or girl? Why did he/she stand out? Let your students’ words fill their paper with a whole new world, new characters and a new special story to share with us. We cannot wait to see what they are going to come up with!

This and That...

Valentine Box or Bag!!

Start working on your Valentine’s Day box. This is due in class no later than Wednesday February 13th. Bag/Box large enough to hold all cards & candy (think adult shoe box size or larger)

  • name is clearly displayed for all to see

  • hole/opening is large enough for items to be dropped inside

  • there is a way to get into the box to read cards

  1. Begin valentines for classmates and bring in with your decorated box or bag!!


Our party will be held on Thursday, Feb. 14th. It will be low-key and classmates only. (No parents this time around!) I do ask that everyone wear red, white, pink or other valentine colors just because it looks awesome in the pics. .
