Valentine Party Treats

Due to recent bouts and concerns of the nasty flu that several of our students have had. In an effort to keep our students healthy and safe, we are asking that treats provided for the Valentine Party be commercially prepared or store bought.
In addition, at the party, we will ask our parents to serve food to the kids, and we will provide gloves as well.
Hopefully this will minimize the amount of germs being passed around.

Thank you all for your support and for sending us your gift.
