We will be having Penny Wars for the next few weeks as a way of "alms giving" in place of rice bowls.
Our SJA annual Valentine’s Day Baby Shower is tomorrow. Each year we collect items to donate to mothers in crisis. The students get to dress up and bring in their wrapped gifts to open during the “baby shower”.
Coach Bohman said that students will not change for PE and that their party clothes will be fine for what she has planned.
We will also celebrate Valentine’s Day tomorrow. If students choose to make valentines for the class they need to make one for each student in the class. Students should not bring in any candy or food with their Valentines due to SJA’s wellness policy. We will be enjoying treats during our party at the end of the day.
No Homework Club this week. If students are re-taking a TEST they can come into my room after school on Wednesday until 3:40. If parents are not there to pick them up I will walk them out to daycare at 3:45.
