A Snowy Week…Sprinkled with LOVE!

Our hallways busy with bundled up students!

We did it…we made it through our first week without a SNOW DAY!  We hope to continue this trend this week, too.  I know it’s time for winter to end when Mr. Rob aka best custodian ever is heard saying, “I’m done with the snow.”  This is a signal to mother nature because this man LOVES to plow snow.

If you want to see the soft side of Mr. Rob, check out Mrs. Stutz’s Kindergarten blog.  Mr. Rob was the mystery reader and surprised the kids by reading one of his favorite books by Mercer Mayer.   Scroll down to the photos found at the bottom of the post.

The week ends with a special celebration — Valentine’s Day.  Each classroom is celebrating at varied times throughout the day.  Be sure to check your child’s class blog for details.

Here’s to a great week….stay warm…and happy Valentine’s Day!

Hearts, Candy and Chocolate

Valentine BagWhen I think of Valentine’s day I think of cards, flowers,  chocolate and candy hearts…and of course elementary school parties!   Did you know that nearly 150 million cards are exchanged each Valentine’s Day? Or that more than 40,000 American are employed at chocolate companies?  (Source: HISTORY.COM)

Did you know that there are many different theories about the beginnings of the Valentine’s day celebrations in the United States and other parts of the world?  The History Channel website is my go to source for all things historical and they have an excellent post about this holiday origins.

If you attend your child’s Valentine Party today, be sure to check out the creativeValentine Mailboxmailboxes designed by each child to hold those special cards.  Also, while walking through the hallways, I would like to invite you to take time to enjoy the art work that is posted all about the school.  Parent volunteers assist Mrs. Brouwer with this important work of showcasing student artwork throughout the year.  The work your young artists create in art class is absolutely top notch.

Thank you for ALL you do to support the work we do at school in learning (fine arts and academics) and social/emotional growth (playing, socializing and collaborating together).  We would be the school we are without outstanding parents like you.

Below is my Valentine’s card to all of you created with red bell peppers. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Hearts and Peppers for YOU!

A Heart Filled Week: Feb 14-17

We begin the week with Valentine’s Day and end with Winter Break!  Squeezed in between we have Marco’s Pizza Night and Donut Delivery Day. Could the week get any better than this?

Here is a snapshot of the events for the week ahead.

Remember:  No School on Friday (Teacher Record’s Day) and Monday (Winter Break Day for teachers and students).
