Valentine's Day Information

Valentine's Day Party

We will be having our Valentine's Day Party on Friday, February 12, 2016 from 2:00

to 3:00pm. We are asking for each student to bring in an item for our party.

Your child should have brought home a paper today with their item on it. If they were absent, they will get the letter Monday.


If your child would like to share Valentine's Day cards with other students, we ask that they include a card for everyone and have them completed prior to the party day. Please keep in mind that peanuts are not allowed into our classroom.
