February definitely was fast and furious! With the week off so that teachers could take part
in professional development opportunities, the month flew by. Hopefully the kids enjoyed their
time off and found some time to rest and relax. While at school, the kids were immersed in
important learning activities. Of course we found some time to squeeze in some school wide
activities and events, such as Pink Day and Jump Rope for Heart, as these events help bring us
together and promote global citizenship. The kids deserve to be commended for all of their
fundraising efforts and contributions to the Heart & Stroke foundation. Together, they raised
over $1600! They fulfilled their commitment to those who donated and completed
various jump rope activities on February 27th.

VIRTUE OF THE MONTH
The virtue of the month is RESPECT. We show RESPECT by speaking and acting with
courtesy. We treat others with dignity and honor the rules of our family, school, and nation.
Respect yourself, and others will respect you!
