We will have so much fun and excitement celebrating LOVE in all sorts of ways. Here is how you and your family can join in!
Food Group Treat Week
During the week of Valentine’s Day each day will be represented by a different food group. Help us teach the children to make healthy food choices by letting them select and bring in an appropriate treat to share with their friends. PLEASE, NO COOKIES, CUPCAKES, OR CANDY!
Monday, February 10 = Dairy
Tuesday, February 11 = Grain
Wednesday, February 12 = Fruit
Thursday, February 13 = Vegetable
Friday, February 14 = Meats
We will have an exchange of valentines during the week of Feb. 12 – 16. On any of these days, your child may bring 20 valentines signed with his or her own name. This is a good motivation for practicing name writing. But… it is a big job to write your name 20 times, so please get the Valentines early so they can do one or two a night. Remember parents! One upper case letter to start the name, and the rest lower case. We will decorate bags at school to hold the valentines which the children will distribute when they bring them to school.
Valentines for Grandparents
We will be making valentines to send to the children’s grandparents. Please send in a stamped pre-addressed envelope for each grandparent you wish to receive a valentine no later than the February 7.
