February Valentine's Day
Next week we will celebrate Valentine’s Day in class by sharing cards and enjoying a snack. I would like to help students decorate Valentine Day boxes for valentines. We could use any available empty shoe boxes or tissue boxes you have at home for this project. We will decorate boxes on Monday, February 13th. I will provide students with a bag to decorate if we do not have enough boxes available.

The gift must be some sort of school supply item/s with a maximum spending limit of $5.00. (The kids are all in need of new supplies J)
Our gift swap will take place on Thursday, December 22nd.
