If you are able to send in a snack to share, we would gladly accept !  Also, today a list of grade one and two names was sent home for you to use to prepare Valentine cards to exchange.  Please note the error on  the newsletter sent home today, Carnaval will take place on February 17 (not the 77!!) .

Great work to those students who kept their reading goals in place for the last 4 weeks!! The committee will be drawing grand prize winners later on this week.
