Valentine’s Day Fun

We had a great time on Valentine’s Day. During reading, we discussed character traits (negative and positive ones) and how we can also possess those same traits. Today was all about lifting our classmates up with writing a positive character trait on one another’s paper hearts. We scooted around the room (to great music of course) and encouraged one another.

At the end of the day, our fifth graders joined one another in the hallway for their favorite drink, a cookie provided by teachers, and got to enjoy reading Valentine’s Day cards from one another. What a memorable day!

Wednesday 2/22 – Early Release

MAKE A NOTE: Wednesday, February 22nd, is an early release day for teacher training.  Intermediate students will release at 12:00 noon. Buses will run their usual routes at this time.

***We are asking that parents not eat lunch at school with their child on the 22nd due to a different and shortened lunch schedule.***

Monday – School Holiday

We will have a school holiday on Monday, February 20th, to celebrate Presidents’ Day. While you are sitting around the house bored and wishing you were back at school, you could test your knowledge of United States Presidents. Here is a Symbaloo webmix that contains several interactive tasks. How many facts do you know?
