7th Grade – Dorton

February Newsletter

From the Teacher

The 9th is 100’s day, students may wear a shirt that has 100 of something on it, but must still wear their uniform bottoms.

Our classroom will be having our Valentine Party on Wednesday, February 14th in the afternoon.  We will complete a valentine craft, have a few snacks, and exchange valentines.  If you would like to send in something for the party, please do so (healthy snacks are preferred, but some sweets are alright).   If your child is going to pass out valentines, they need to bring one for everyone.

February 14th is also spring count day, it is important that students are here on this day!
February 16th is our First father/daughter dance, notes have gone home about this.
February 20th is our monthly PTO meeting, at 8:30 am.
