Valentine’s Day Party
Our class will distribute valentines during our party on February 14th. Each child is invited to create their own “Valentine Mailbox” at home and bring it in between 2/12 and 2/14 for their classmates to deliver valentines. If your child would like to participate in the valentine exchange, please be sure they have a valentine for every child in the class. We have 20 students. I will send out a class list if your child would like to address valentines personally. If not, “To Friend” works well too! Be on the lookout for a “Sign Up” link if you would like to donate items to our party.
