We have a very busy week. Monday we will be going to the symphony at the Belcher Center. Please have your child wear a White Oak t-shirt and jeans. If they need a t-shirt, we have some available. Tuesday, we will have Valentines parties in our homerooms. Your student needs to bring a drink. We will provide the cookies. A list was sent home last week of the names of the students in your homeroom so that if your child wants to bring Valentines they can send one for each child in their class.
