Please only write who the Valentine is from,do not address the 'to' section of the Valentine.This will make handing out the Valentines a lot easier for our friends and will take less time to fill out at home. Each child will decorate a bag inclass to use to collect their Valentines!

    Homework is typically given M-Th. Reading is not required, however it is highly encouraged. I will send home a reading log in order to tract reading at home. The class with the most readers will win the GOLDEN BOOK award. Math homework is given when we complete a math lesson.
