Book projects are almost finished.  One more week. 

Thank you to all students who turned in their Heart Research on time.   Papers will be returned next week and go right into the work portfolios.

REMINDERTHE ANNUAL VALENTINE’S LUNCH is on MONDAY, FEBRUARY 14!  For those of you who are new to this, the Valentine’s Lunch is a student lunch exchange.  On Thursday, each child pulled a “secret valentine”  and brought home a lunch menu.  Your child (with your assistance!) will shop and prepare the lunch according to the secret valentine’s wishes.  Please put the lunch into a special valentine box or bag (a shoebox covered with foil or other wrapping paper and decorated with hearts is always a hit in the classroom) and then bring it in, in a plastic bag to conceal the identity.  Lunches will be brought out at lunchtime, where each student will try and guess their valentine.  It’s a fun day and the students love it.  Some students bring in valentine cards, but not all do.  We do ask that if your child would like to share valentines with the class, to please be sure to include everyone.  There are 14 students total in the classroom. 

***Please let me know ASAP if your child will not be able to come in on Monday so that I can make sure everyone has a lunch!!!

Thanks and have a great weekend!
