Valentine's Day Party - Bring in a Shoebox!

We are getting ready for our Valentine's Day party on Friday, February 12 from 1:15-2:15!During the party, the students will make ice cream sundaes and will have the opportunity to pass out valentines to their homeroom. A sign up will be coming soon and we'll be asking for volunteers to donate ice cream sundae ingredients and supplies.


If students choose to bring valentines, we ask that they bring one for all students in their homeroom. See the link below for a list of names of students in each class.


During the party, students will decorate shoeboxes to hold their valentines. Please send in a shoebox with your child's name on it between now and the day of the party. If you are able to send any extra shoeboxes you have, it would be greatly appreciated!
