I hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day! The kids enjoyed delivering their cards to their classmates. It was very cute. I was on crutches yesterday but I'm in a new brace and off them. :) The bad news is that I partially tore my ACL. I'll be checking in with the Dr. every week and we'll see if surgery is needed. I'm walking slowly around the room and the kids have been a great help.
Community groups are meeting today. Ask your child what community building activity they did. :)
Conference Times: I'll send home your schedule conference time tomorrow. Please sign it and return the form to school. Please try to stick with the scheduled time. It's very difficult having to make changes once I have a set schedule.
Conference form: It's yellow. Please answer the questions and send it back to school with your child. I look forward to
