Notes for this week-
Sweet Treats night is tomorrow night for our WATCH DOGS program at 6:00.
Progress reports are coming home on Wednesday! Make sure you are looking over your child's graded papers and discussing with them the areas they feel they need to improve on. These come home every other Wednesday.
Valentine lunch in the room is scheduled for Friday. A note came home last week. If your child would like to bring in valentines to swap, they may do so on Friday during lunch. We are not having a party, but will fellowship with your friends Friday to celebrate! If you would like to send in a special treat, just let your child's homeroom teacher know.
