Happy February! We will be taking next week off from our OWL curriculum to have some Valentine's Day fun. We will be working on Valentine's Day cards, creating Valentine envelopes and having some much need free choice time, as we are ahead of our curriculum schedule! Remember there is no school Friday, 2/10 (Teacher PD)!
Some important reminders:

On Tuesday (2/14) please send in 17 valentines with your child's name on it (you do not need to address each valentine, just make sure it is signed with your child's name). Children will then hand out their valentines to each one of their friends.
