Ski Night
Tuesday, January 28  3pm-9ish. 
Students who signed up and paid to go on the 5th Grade Ski Trip to Bogus will be leaving school around 3pm on Tuesday.  We will be back to Discovery around 9pm, so please be sure to be in the parking lot to get your child off of the bus.    Students not going on the ski trip will be dismissed at the end of the regular school day. 

Valentine's Party
Friday, February, 14
We will be having a Valentine's Day party on Friday, February 14 the last hour of class.  Student's will be doing a valentine swap.  It is not required that your child bring valentines, but if he/she does choose to bring them, he/she must bring a valentine for every student. 

Students will need to bring a decorated shoe box or a decorated bag to use to collect their valentines, as we won't have time to decorate them in class.  

The first 20 minutes of our party will be devoted to passing out and reading the valentines.  I am requesting a parent volunteer to organize this party.  This will include organizing a treat and a 30 minute activity.  Please contact me as soon as possible if you can be the organizer of this party.
