2016 Valentine boxes

Valentine’s Day Celebration will be on Thursday, February 11th.  In the case of a snow day, our celebration will occur the next school day we have. 

                                AM Celebration will begin at 10:00 a.m..
                                PM Celebration will begin at 1:15 p.m.

Parents are welcome to join us!  We will have Valentine’s themed events in each of our centers.  Parents and other guests will be invited to join your child as they explore these centers.  We will also personally pass out valentines into our friends’ boxes and enjoy snacks before our day ends.  PLEASE SIGN UP FOR OUR LIST OF ITEMS IN THE HALLWAY FOR OUR CLASS PARTY.  We are always looking forward to celebrating in our classroom!

If you choose to bring Valentine's from your child, please ensure they bring a Valentine for each child.  Attached is a class list.  We encourage you to let your child write their classmate's name on their valentine while also signing their own name representing who the valentine is from.  (PLAN AHEAD AS THIS COULD BE A LONG TASK THAT MIGHT BE BEST OVER A FEW DAYS)  Also, please help your child decide if they want to either make their own valentines or purchase pre-made store versions; either way the children LOVE seeing the personalities of their friends through these tokens.

FAMILIES WILL MAKE THEIR VALENTINE'S BOX AND BRING IT IN ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11TH.  Please DO NOT bring in the box prior to the day of our party.  Allow your child's imagination to be used in their creation of their box.  Please ensure your child's name is visible and large enough for a child to see and read as STUDENTS will distribute their valentines.

Remember this is a project for you and your child to do together.  There will be flaws, it might not be perfect (but it will totally be perfect to them); but the point is that THEY made it.  Their sense of pride when they create something is amazing!  Encourage them each step!

Tips to remember:  You want the box big enough that 20 valentines (and possible goodies attached) can fit within it AND make sure your child's name is big enough to be seen on the front of the box.

Here is an example of my daughter's box she made last year:
