February 12 - Valentine’s Snack Celebration
Every February 14, people exchange greeting
cards, candy, flowers, and gifts, all in the name
of St. Valentine. For children, it is a wonderful
opportunity to show appreciation for their friends
and the people they love. We will be celebrating
the occasion with a snack party and the students
are encouraged to dress in red, pink, or purple.
February 12 - Valentine’s Day Card Exchange &
Goody Bags
Our students will exchange Valentine’s Cards and goody
bags on Friday, February 12, 2021. The following are
some suggested items for the goody bags: pencils, erasers,
small toys, notepads, coloring books, crayons, and other
creative materials. For the safety of our students, we
discourage parents from sending candies in the goody
bags. Kindly contact your child’s teacher if you need more
information. We are looking forward to a fun-filled
Valentine’s Day.
