The Mane Tail

Friday, January 14th, 2022


Dear Parents,

We will be allowing students to exchange valentines this year. Each student may bring valentine cards for the students in his/her class. The student should write his/her name in the “from” section of the valentine, but leave the “to” section blank. This will help with the valentine delivery. Students may attach one piece of candy to each of their valentines. Parents may not send goodie bags or other celebratory items to school. (This includes candy, flowers, balloons, cookies, etc.) In addition, deliveries for students are not allowed at Sampson. Students will be instructed to bring their valentines (and pieces of candy) home to enjoy.
