Happy Valentine’s Day

Today is Valentine’s Day.  We celebrate this day by showing others how much we care about them, and our class has shown how much we care about people who are struggling with cancer.   For the past 3 weeks students at Otis Brown Elementary participated in the Pennies for Patients change drive benefitting the Luekemia and Lymphoma Society. 

I am so proud of my students and how they showed their “Attitude of Gratitude”.  During that 3 week change drive, our class collected $207.88.  WOW!  I am so blessed to have students and parents that are so generous and think of others.
