Valentines Day

We will not be having a Valentine's Party at school, however, we will have time set aside at the end of the school day on February 14 for students to exchange Valentines with each other. If you choose to send your child with Valentines for their classmates, we ask that you send enough for every student in the homeroom and label them all "To: My Friend, From: (Your child's name)". This will aid in passing cards out quickly and easily. A small store bought and individually packaged candy or food item may be included, but nothing large or home-made. We will not be eating any candy or treats at school. All Valentines will go home with your student so that you can make the best decision of what and how much your child eats.
