Students are welcome to bring Valentine's cards for their friends, as well as join in fun Valentine themed activities and games.
Each student will have a "mail bag" outside of class for Valentine cards to be delivered to. We ask that parents hand out cards at the beginning of class so that the mail bags can be taken home by each student at the end of the day.
**A special reminder about treats:**
If you choose to attach a small treat with Valentine cards, please be mindful of the allergies in your child's classroom and remember to read ingredient labels. We are a NUT FREE school. Thank you so much!
