Third Annual Valentine’s Holder Contest a Hit!!

Every year these Valentine holders get better and better!  This one, designed by Ben and Mason won “Most Humorous Valentine Holder” award!




This one, designed by Charli, won the award for “Most Creative”!

The media player by Hayley and Avery, as well as the snake, designed by Tegan, won “Most Artistic Valentine Holder”.

But you can see that Alyssa’s roller blade and Evan’s bird were very good too and won “Honorable Mention”.

Here are some others, that all won “Honorable Mentions”!  Everyone did such a great job!  And a big thanks to all the parents who volunteered to make our party a success!!

February Update!

Where are you sunshine?!

Last year’s cute holders!

Hi Families!  Just a quick update for the upcoming Valentine’s party!  First,  the party is next Tuesday, Feb. 14 from 2:15 – 3:15.  Students are welcome to bring in their valentine holders any time from now until next week.  We are having a contest for the “Most Creative”, “Most Artistic”, and “Most Humorous” Valentine holders.  This is an optional contest.  If your student is not interested in participating, have them see me for a bag to decorate to hold valentines.  Valentines can be brought in any time, however, we won’t pass them out until the day of the party.

Second, our third round of science is wrapping up this week.  Your student will be tested on the sun and moon unit this Thursday (Feb. 9).

Third, tonight and tomorrow night are Jet’s Pizza nights.  If you call and order a pizza and give them our class name, we might possibly win a pizza party!  We sure could use one!

Happy February!

A Fantastic February

IMG_4709We are going well into February, so far! We also got a load of snow over winter break that we did not expect! Jennifer, a girl from our class, is enjoying the winter snow, making the zip line even more slippery than normal! Right now in school, we are writing literary essays in writer’s workshop. In math, we are learning patterns. In gym, for the month of February, we are doing “Jump rope for heart” to help people with heart problems. In music, we are practicing for our field trip to Carnegie Hall. In art, we are working on clay pinch pots. Anyways, we are making valentines boxes to enter a contest. February is off to a great start!
