There are lots of fun things to do this week. Spirit Night is Tuesday at Zupas from 5 - 9 p.m. Come have some good food and support our PTA! Valentine's Day is Thursday. Our class party will be from 2:30 - 3:30. Mrs. Farnworth has planned a fun party for us. We still need some help. If you would like to help, please let me know. We are making heart holders in class this week. You do not need to make a valentine box to send to school. Our heart holders fold up and fit perfectly in backpacks. Please don't forget that we have peanut allergies in our class. We have 23 kids in our class this year. Help us pass out our treats quickly by not putting names 'To:" names on them (it makes it way to hard and slows down the passing out of treats). Have a fun week!
