Valentines- Our class will celebrate Valentine’s Day on Thursday, February 14th. Students may bring valentines to give to their classmates. Valentines are optional, but students that choose to give valentines should make them for ALL of their classmates. Students should also decorate a container at home to hold their valentines. Please do not send valentines or containers to school until Thursday, Feb. 14th. Thank you!

Mystery Readers-Look for a note this week for the opportunity to sign up to be a Mystery Reader in our class during the month of February.

Valentine’s Day Party Volunteers Needed- On Thursday, February 14th ALL second graders look forward to celebrating Valentine’s Day together.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with the party, please return the pink form sent home with your child or call/email Mrs. Clark. We are looking for activities that allow students to “roam” around. A few ideas from past years include: face painting, pin the heart, musical hearts, bowling, bingo, and stack the candy hearts.
