Our field trip forms are being sent home today. We are taking a trip to the Elachee Nature Science Center on Thursday, March 3rd. Please return permission slips/payment by February 18th, so we have our numbers set. You can send in a check or make payments through My Payments Plus.

I am sending home a class list for students who want to exchange Valentines. We will do this on Friday, February 12. This is not mandatory, however I ask that if your child chooses to participate that they have a valentine for each student in the class.

Starting on Tuesday, February 9, Valentine Grams will be sold in the morning and will be sold until Friday, February 12. This is a fundraiser for Relay for Life and Valentine Grams will be sold for $1 each. Students can send these grams to other students or siblings in the school.

Our talent show is scheduled for February 11th at 6 pm at Canon Church. This is a fundraiser for Relay for Life. We have several, talented students from our class participating and it should be a fun night. I hope to see you there!
