Dear JK Families,
May your Valentine’s Day be filled with loving acts of kindness! We have been talking about ways to show love to others, not only on Valentine’s Day, but any day -- by sharing, helping, saying kind words, or by making cards for family and friends. A special way that we do this in Junior Kindergarten is with our Compliment Circle. Be sure to ask your child to tell you all about it!
The children are encouraged to bring in Valentines for each member of the class (Teo, Caroline, Stella, Aidan, Finn, Sebastian, Hailey, Layla, Ella, Emily, Liam, Vela, Nika). They will all have decorated Valentine bags with their names on them. I love to watch the children match the names on their Valentines with the names on the bags. They are getting so good at reading each other’s names!
This week, the children will be learning about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln and why we celebrate them on Presidents’ Day. So, our Letter of the Week will be “P” for Presidents’ Day.

February 17-21: Winter Break – no school
