Dear Collins’ Families,
Happy February and Valentine’s Day. I cannot believe that we are half-way through the school year. In February, we focus on the idea of giving to others. We will have our Jump Rope for Your Heart Day on 2/13/14 during physical education classes. It is important to encourage healthy exercise. Thanks to Mr. Maczinski for helping to put this wonderful event on to help awareness for heart disease.
Thank you to Mrs. Decker, Mrs. Jansen, Mrs. Ingram, Ms. Hatzinger, Mrs. Thompson, Ms. Butler, and all other volunteers who helped to make our Winter Carnival a success once again. The families really enjoyed the night. The auction baskets were fabulous, creative, and well-designed.
Thank you to Mrs. Bagley for our fantastic Kindness Counts T-Shirts. All Collins’ staff will be wearing the shirts on Mondays. We will continually reinforce the importance of showing kindness to others.
