Grade 1 celebrated Valentine’s Day with a special breakfast event at the Bucknall gym. Parents were invited to join in on the fun, which included a breakfast of waffles, fresh fruit and juice as well as a special student activity that involved making heart-shaped valentines on which they wrote something they liked and why. The valentines were then posted on a larger heart that was displayed in the first grade homerooms.
The homeroom teachers also shared stories with the kids, who were asked to dress in red, white or pink to mark the occasion. Later in the day, the students exchanged Valentine’s cards in their respective classrooms.
“The children had a great time, the parents had a chance to socialize with other parents and spend with their child at school,” said Diann Chung, grade 1 homeroom teacher.
