Dear Parents,

Our Valentine’s Party will be February 14th @ 11:00-12:00. Thank you Caitlin Hasley for helping to plan this party. Here is a link to a few more things we are needing for the party. Please sign up if you are able to send in the needed items or if you are able to help at the party. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0445A8AC29A6FE3-valentines

A note will be going home tomorrow that will include a class list of names. Please help your child fill out a Valentine card for each student in our class.

We will also be decorating a “Valentine’s Day sack” to hold all of our Valentines cards.  We need your help with decorations!  If you have any stickers, hearts, glitter (anything that would be fun to decorate a bag), we would LOVE to use it to decorate our bags.

Thank You,

Stephanie Bradley
