Let's approach Valentine's Day with the spirit of social/emotional learning in mind. The students are becoming masterful at giving compliments. I watch students compliment peers who may not have even demonstrated exceptionally wonderful behavior that day, but who really needed a compliment. In one of the kid president videos, he says "If you can't find anything nice to say...you aren't thinking hard enough!" Our kids have been giving meaningful, kind comments regularly.
Valentine's Day Guidelines:
-Making Valentine's is entirely optional! You can still come participate and have a great time at the party even if you didn't make Valentines this year.
-If you do want to make Valentines, make sure that you make one for every student
-Write a simple compliment for each student
-Let's just give cards, no treats (We will have great treats at our party!)
Parents are welcome to attend our party! It will be held on Friday from 2:45-3:25
