Valentine Grams:
The students received Valentines Grams form this week. This is a fundraiser for one of the HS classes. For Valentine's Day, I would encourage the students to share Valentine cards or goodies with their classmates in the class. You are welcome to make homemade cards or goodies or purchase from somewhere else. Another option would be to order from the Christmas Grams. Please write on the form clearly who it is from and who it is for. You can also use this form to get gift for your child’s friends in other classes or for siblings. Please do not feel like you have to order from the Valentine Gram. It is just another option.

Again, for Valentine's Day I would love for us to exchange small cards or goodies, nothing big, to everyone in the class. If you would like a class list, please let me know.
