Friendship/Valentine's Day

Tomorrow is Friendship Day, aka Valentine's Day to the rest of the world.  Our crew will celebrate by passing out homemade Valentine's that include 1 or 2 kind sentences to each other.  

Students took home lists of their classmates name at the beginning of the month.  Most of my extra copies have also been taken home.  We have been discussing this in class every day for the past two weeks.  I am so excited to watch the magic happen they read kind words to written by another classmate.  This has been a very positive crew building experience in the past.  

Please no "food" treats. Other non-food treats are fine.  Students are asking about making Valentine's boxes.  That is GREAT, but we are not making them in class, so they'll have to make them at home.

If you have questions your child can't answer, email me, and I'll be happy to answer them for you!

Thank  you so much for coming to our Celebration on Learning on Thursday.  It was a great evening filled with energy and excitement.  I love watching the students share their learning with you and participate in Trading Post.  They all worked so hard on their trading cards and seeing students leave with a handful of cards was very rewarding.  

Thanks again for celebrating with us!










A very special thanks to our mountain man who braved the cold wind to share stories by our amazing fireplace in the west pavilion.

Supplies Needed for a Fun Activity

On Thursday, December 14 we will be making punch lanterns at school.


  • A night or two before the big day, fill an empty vegetable tin can (15 oz) with water and freeze it.
  • Bring that frozen can to school on Dec. 14 along with a hammer and a towel.
  • Wrap the towel around the can to help keep it frozen.  
  • I'll provide the nails.


Can't wait to have a "bang" up time!

Save The Date

Our Celebration of Learning will be held on Thursday, Jan 11 from 6:00 to 7:30. We are looking forward to a fun night of looking at artifacts and trading goods.  Can't wait to see you all there!
