Valentine's Day Card Exchange

Classes will have a Valentine’s Day exchange on Wednesday, February 14th.

If students choose to bring cards, they must bring enough for everyone in the class.

Parents, to save time, please have your child write his/her name near “from” and leave “to” blank. This will make it easier to pass cards out.

Thanks so much for your cooperation!

You can prepare your child for testing by helping them get a good night’s rest, eat a healthy breakfast, and sending them to school with encouragement and a positive attitude!

February’s Core Value: Kindness

Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them. Remember that the “K” in B.A.R.K stands for “kind”. Labradors are always kind and caring students. Lee is a “No Place for Hate” school. We accept everyone for who they are, and we are kind to all. That is Lee’s culture, and it is who we are. Parents and guardians, you are welcome to join your child on February 14, 2018 at 2:30 p.m. to “hug our school”. Students, staff, parents, and community members will form a circle around the school. We will link arms as a sign that we stand together, and there is no room for hate in our hearts.
