Valentine’s Day Party Plans

We are planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Tuesday, February 14 from 2:20-3:20.  A team of parents are planning a snack and three activity stations.  Thank you, party planners! 🙂  We will also have a station where students will be able to open valentines from other students.    

Students will have some time to decorate valentine bags in our classroom or they are welcome to create a valentine box at home.  It’s fun to see the creativity come out in the bags and boxes! 🙂

If you choose to share valentines, we have 24 in our class. I have encouraged students to just sign the valentines they will be sharing and not address them to specific classmates.  It’s a little less personal, but it speeds up the process of delivering them.  

We’re looking forward to a fun party!


Ease into the Season Celebration!

On Friday, December 18, our focus in the afternoon is going to be on food, friends, and fun!  The plans are as follows:

Come comfortable.  Mrs. Reagan has declared this to be Holiday Spirit Week!  Friday is pajama or ugly sweater day, it’s your choice.

Enjoy entertainment.  All of the Georgetown fourth graders will gather in the library to watch a movie.  We are planning to show Shaun the Sheep.  Critics Consensus: Warm, funny, and brilliantly animated, Shaun the Sheep is yet another stop-motion jewel in Aardman’s family-friendly crown.” (click on link for more info: Rotten Tomatoes)  Please let me know if you would prefer for your child to not watch this movie and I will make other arrangements for him/her.

Sip, sing, and strategize.  downloadThe afternoon will wrap up with hot chocolate, Christmas music, and games.  Please pack your favorite card game, board game, and/or electronic game.

We are looking forward to easing into the season! 🙂
