The children will be making Valentines and will talk about friendship for Valentines Day.Having the honor of hosting this years Super Bowl the children will makes banners for the team they would like to see win. If anyone would like to take a dip in the Ocean, Long Beach will hold their annual Make A Wish Polar Bear plunge on Super Bowl morning.
All of the students will be learning about “appreciation” for our character education component of our curriculum.
