The children will weave special, heart-shaped paper envelopes to hold their cards. A list of the student names is attached so the kids can label cards. Please remember: distributing cards is optional. However, if your child chooses to bring valentine cards, please be sure there is one for every student.

 

PAJAMA DAY : We finished reading Charlotte’s Web and plan to watch the movie at school Friday, February 15. Students are invited to wear pajamas, slippers and robes. A lap-sized stuffie can join the fun.J Kids will eat popcorn and write about their stuffie. Please be sure PJs are warm and appropriate for school.

Our class is invited to perform during this year’s Asian Celebration, held at the Lane Events Center. The student performance is scheduled for Sunday, February 17, at 5:00 on the Main Stage. Please arrive by 4:45 and check in with Azusa or me behind the main stage when you arrive. Bhangra dance instructor, SatPavan encourages girls to wear a colorful outfit (skirt or pants). Boys are asked to wear jeans and a plain, light colored shirt. We’ll have a colorful sash and headband for them to wear. Admission for this 2-day event is $6.00 per person (12 and over) however, a list of our students was submitted to the performance registration table and one adult from the family will be admitted free! Consider coming early in the day and enjoy the incredible variety of foods, displays, performances and more.
