A Note From Mrs. Graham
We will be celebrating Valentine's Day on Thursday when we sing for our friends at the Meadows and as we eat together at Wendy's. The Frosty's after lunch and a couple of treats I plan to have for them should be enough. If your child wants to bring in a Valentine for everyone that would be fine. We can exchange those in the afternoon. We are writing encouraging notes to everyone in the class to be bound in a book for each student. So if you choose not to do anything else, that is okay, too. These books may not go home until later in the month. It takes a long time for some of us to write 18 letters. I promise they will be worth the wait.

I stole this picture from Anna's facebook page. I hope you don't mind. All the pictures I saw of this night were of beautiful, happy girls and their daddies who love them.
