Due to today’s snow day, please have your child prepare/drop off their Thoreau Valentine’s heart in the lobby on Wednesday morning. Adult volunteers will be on-hand to assemble the finished project and give our busy teachers a warm, wonderful surprise!
As a reminder of how this works, please ask your kids to think of just ONE word to best describe what they love most about life at Thoreau (e.g. – Fun, Safe, Silly, Interesting, Full of Books (okay, 3 words), Music, Buddies, Gym, Science, etc.). These small messages will be added to a big Valentine heart throughout the morning tomorrow in an attempt to make one truly awesome Valentine! There will be a banner above this big heart that reads: “What we LOVE about Thoreau School!” Please consider having your child make their own mini-heart. Simple is great; here’s a sample size: * https://www.dropbox.com/s/yzhxfyje1wpo6zc/Thoreau%20heart%20printable%202.pdf?dl=0
Simply figure out what that ONE word is and write it in big letters (along with your child’s first name and grade, in small letters) on a small heart-shaped piece of paper. Nothing fancy needed! For those kids who forget, we will have a few extra small hearts on Wednesday morning, but we need as many kids as possible to do this in advance (arriving with a finished heart Wednesday AM) to avoid bottlenecks in the entryway!
Happy Valentine’s Day to Thoreau!
