President Reports

On Thursday, Feb. 12, each child will share a little information about a president to celebrate President's Day. Each child chose a president to learn about. Please let me know if you need another paper with information and guidelines to help the children as they prepare for their first "oral report". This is meant to be a fun activity. The children can be creative with visual aides or costumes or they can simply read their report and share fun facts.

Box Tops

Please remember to turn in Box Tops until February 24. Please send box tops in a baggie, an envelope, or tape them to the collection papers found near the front office.

Valentine's Day

The children are welcome to bring Valentine's to give to all of their friends in room 22 on Friday, February 13. REMEMBER - NO CANDY OR FOOD. It is completely optional. My only request is that the children bring one for every student in the class if they decide to participate. We will make bags in the classroom to hold Valentine's . We have 21 students total.
