Experience Our Energy


Happy Valentines Day. How are you celebrating today? We had our class parties on Friday; we read stories about friendship and love, like Eileen Spinelli's Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch, we exchanged Valentines, we did some fun activities, and we ate delicious goodies. 

If you don't already have this book, do yourself a favor and check it out; it is such a touching story about the difference a kind word or deed can make. Click the graphic to hear Hector Elizondo read it aloud.


We got together as a school family while our awesome volunteers prepared for the parties to move to the Cupid Shuffle and The Friday Dance (Glee Cast Version!), choreographed by our rockin' PE teachers. Click the video below to experience our pre-party energy. 
Oh, and feel free to turn it up and dance along!

  1. Love it all! We listened to it on Storyline Online and wrote/gave messages to people who we thought might not have many friends, or people who may be easily forgotten at our school on Valentine's Day {lunch lady, custodian, secretary, etc.}. Some kids signed theirs and others remained a mystery. A book with such a great message!
