Valentines Party: Our class Valentine's Parties are on February 13th and 14th from 9:30-10:30. As always parents are welcome to join us and help out at the party.
We will exchange Valentines at school. I ask that everyone bring in Valentines for each student in your child's class. We have 26 students total. Either leave the "To:" space blank or write in My friend; it makes it much easier for us if we can have your child just pass one out to each student's Valentine bag (that we will make in class). To make filling out Valentines easier have your child write their name on 2 or 3 each night for the next few weeks.
To ensure the safety of all our students we also ask that if you would like to attach something to your Valentine's please do not attach candy. Acceptable choices would be pencil, sticker, or tattoo.
Dial 3 Screenings: We started the Dial 3 screenings this week. Francis Howell was here on Thursday and Friday. I have also started screening the students who are not in the Francis Howell school district.
Grandparents Day: Don't forget that Grandparents Day will be on March 9 for all students. If Grandparents are not able to attend another special friend may come in their place.
