Valentine’s Day
We will celebrate Valentine’s Day this Friday with a card exchange.  If your child chooses to bring valentines to share, please make sure to bring enough for all 29 children.  No candy, please.  Other treats (tattoos, pencils, etc.) are fine.  We suggest labeling valentines.  Here’s a list of names so that your child can get everyone:

Asa, Cody, Emilia, Marshall, Nora, Obende, Roscoe, Colyn, Christopher M., Scout, Taisia, Albert, Alice, Arthur, Auzy, Chris, Gabriella, Henry, Hugh, Indigo, Leah, Merren, Nathan, Paisley, Sage, Tucker, Veronica, Violette, Zev

Science Project Homework
On Thursday we handed out the next phase of science project homework.  Make sure to do a backpack check and look through the packet with your child!  Kids who stayed for Thursday afternoon got started writing down their experimental procedure and planning how to collect data.  Students who left early because of snow may need a little extra help.  In either case, plan to embark on the actual experiment by Friday, February 14.  Also, if your child needs to do the experiment at school or otherwise needs extra support, we must know as soon as possible! Please let me know if you have any questions.  

Science Fair Resources
Here is a link to the UO SPICE Science Fair website.  On it are registration forms and links to sites with great science project ideas and guidance:
