Valentine Party:
We will have a Valentine party this Friday.  If you are able to help with centers that day, please send me a reminder text.
Also, there are a few items we need for that day.  I will put a sign-up on the door or you can text me and I'll sign you up.
We will be having a Valentine exchange that day.  If you would like to send some valentines for you child to pass out, PLEASE send one for every student.  We have 24 students in class.  I also ask that you do not put names on your child's valentines.  It is very difficult to pass out specific valentines to specific students when there are 24 students.  Just have your child sign their name showing it is from them.  Thanks for your support here.  It makes things go MUCH smoother.
