No Valentine's Day Deliveries: Valentine's Day is coming up and I know that we are all excited for the day dedicated to love. Please know that we love your students and strive daily to create positive meaningful educational experiences for them, even on Valentine’s Day. In past years on Valentines we have been inundated with deliveries. This is a major distraction for students and teachers. We believe it negatively impacts learning. Because of that, we will not be delivering Valentine gifts to students at school. Thank you for your understanding and support in this.

There will be a live DJ! No date is required! Bring your friends and have a fun time!
