Every February 14, people exchange greeting cards,
candy, flowers, and gifts, all in the name of St.

to show appreciation for their friends and the people
they love. We will be celebrating the occasion with a
snack party and the students are encouraged to dress
in red, pink, or purple.
February 11 - Valentine’s Day Card Exchange & Goody
Our students will exchange Valentine’s Cards and goody bags
on Thursday, February 11, 2021. The following are some
suggested items for the goody bags: pencils, erasers, small
toys, notepads, coloring books, crayons, and other creative
materials. For the safety of our students, we discourage
parents from sending candies in the goody bags. Kindly
contact your child’s teacher if you need more information.
We are looking forward to a fun-filled Valentine’s Day.

Presidents’ Day honors all past presidents of the United

Washington, the first President, and Abraham Lincoln,

the Union. The school will be closed on Monday,

Used Book & Educational Toys Donations
Reading to children is one of the most effective
ways for strong cognitive development. Our
Montessori program includes a rigorous reading
program, and our teachers are always in search of
exciting books to read to the class. We strongly
encourage our parents to donate their child’s used
books and educational toys to our class library.
