Class Notes

  • We are participating in The Great Kindness Challenge.  This is a fabulous opportunity for students and teachers to spread kindness!  We can’t wait to see our school’s success! Please encourage your student to do as many acts of kindness as they can on their sheets!  For K-2nd students completing 6/12 acts will count as completion and for  3rd-5th 20/50 acts will count as completion.  Students do not need to do everything on the sheet for it to count as completion. They return the sheet this week and receive a bracelet.
  • On 2/14 students may bring in Valentine Cards to exchange. We have 18 students, participation is not mandatory but I ask that if you do participate you have a card for every student. Your student can fill out the “from” section, but not write “to” specific students as this makes it harder for students to deliver their own cards. We will create Valentines Bags in class for Valentine delivery.
