What’s Coming Up – Week of February 12-16

Valentine’s Activities:

    • Our Valentine’s activity for fifth grade will be a classroom activity.
    • We will NOT need parent volunteers for our activity, but we will be asking for snack donations. 
    • We will have classroom Valentine exchanges on February 14. If your child chooses to participate, please send in a Valentine for every student in the class.
    • Some students have asked about making a Valentine box. If students wish to do so, they may, but it is certainly not required. I will have bags for students to use for Valentines as well. Students who wish to make a Valentine box should plan to bring it in on Wednesday, February 14 and to bring it home that day as well.
