Valentine Card Guidelines-We’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Thursday, February 14th.

·         If you are not familiar with the tradition of children exchanging Valentine cards, boxes of children’s valentine cards can be purchased at WalMart, Target, pharmacies, etc. A box is typically $3-$4 for approximately 20-25 cards. The amount in each box may vary so check the quantity.

·         Send in 25 valentine cards–one for each student. (Ms. Lori has 26 students in her class.)

·         Your child’s name should be in the “From” spot, but do not address them to individual students. Feel free to send the cards in early and leave them in your child’s cubby in a zip-lock bag.

·         If the cards come with a sticker, tattoo, etc. that is fine, but please do not send any type of candy or additional items for the class.

PTO  Update: 

Soirée set-up: 

·         On Friday, February 22, we’ll need help to set up for Saturday’s Montessoiree!  Let us know if you are able to help anytime on Friday (just give us a time frame you’re available).

·         If you are available to be able to pick up and/or drop off auction items, let us know.

·         Having a group of people help transport items from the school to the hotel will save us from having to make multiple trips.

·         You will be able to have your children in daycare for no charge if you are helping with the soiree.

·         There will be a sign-up sheet on the PTO table in the dining room starting next week or you can email back on this Notes Home and we’ll get you signed up!
