We hope you enjoyed your weekend!
Last week the children had a LOT of fun celebrating our 100th Day of School. Thank you to all of you parents for helping out with this wonderful celebration. All their projects were outstanding!!
As Valentine´s Day is around the corner, we are requesting you to help your child decorate a shoe box to be used as their mailbox. Be creative, and let your child brainstorm the ideas that he/she would like their box to look like. We are going to display all these lovely mailboxes on Wednesday, February 14th for your child to deliver their valentine cards for their friends. This is a voluntary activity. However, if you decide to participate, the only request that we have is that the students should bring one card or treat to each one of the First Grade students. This mailbox should be in school on Monday, February 12th.
We have a total of 15 students! Here is the list….
Alejandro Contreras Hedy Rojas
Alejandro Palma Jurgen Krauter
Camila Reyes Liang Zhou
Camilo Moncada Nathan Agurcia
Joane Ochoa Santiago Paz
