Dear Parents,

This week, we will be studying the continents of Europe and Africa, and will continue to study mammals and trees. We are also gearing up for our annual Art Show (Sunday, April 2), which will be an “outdoor art exhibit” this year. Our new art teacher, Ms. Stephanie, is requesting that parents send in cardboard egg cartons. Please send these by February 17.

On Tuesday, we will have our annual Sweetheart Breakfast in the library from 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM. There is no charge for this event, which is an opportunity for parents to have breakfast at school with their children.

Our class will distribute Valentines in the afternoon (February 14) before carline. Please send 18 Valentine cards (signed with your child's name only) by Monday morning (Feb 13). Please do not write the names of the other children on the cards.

The children will decorate bags and then distribute the cards, dropping one card in each child’s bag. If names are written on the cards, it makes the distribution process exceedingly complex and long. You may send cards with a small treat attached, if you like (the children will not be allowed to eat the treats until you have had an opportunity to approve them).

Have a great week!
