How does your child celebrate Valentine's Day at school?

Will they have a party? Do they pass out Valentines cards? Does the school allow candy? 


I am just curious how different it is between schools. 


My 8 year old is off school on Friday for a teacher work day. On Thursday they are having "friendship" parties at school. They don't allow any sort of candy so he is giving out cards that come with pencils.

My kids usually pass out cards. Parents can send in snacks. I usually make goody bags for their classmates with pencils, erasers and some candy.

it is my cross to bear this week ... my daughter goes to private school but Friday they are asked to ditch their uniforms and dress up, preferably in pink or red. Dresses for the girls, nice clothes for the boys.  DD has no dress fitting that description and now I have to go shop for a stupid dress, blow a ridiculous amount of money on a clothe item she will wear once or twice.   Of course all her friends are making a mountain out of a mole hill about this and DD in her 10 year old mind is convinced that her friends will show up in ball gownds ....  she will bring Valentines to school and in the afternoon 3 classes are combining efforts and doing a little party which includes a chocolate fountain.

They will have parties. The second grade teachers decided the kids have to pass out healthy treats with their valentines instead of candy. Way to suck the fun out of it. I'm sending oat and chocolate  Fiber One bars, after all it IS a granola bar, I'll also be laughing my butt off.

If you buy a pink one she can wear it again for Easter.

Make Valentine boxes or decorate sacks, pass out valentines for each child, and have a party of some sort.  This year we are having a ice cream sundae bar and a craft.  :)

We aren't allowed to send in any type of food. If we want to bring snacks for the class we have to go up during the party & have them approved in person. Sort of takes the fun out of it. :(

Sounds like fun for her! Though not so much for you. What about checking thrift stores or kids consignment stores? Way cheaper for something that won't get much use.

LOL! It isn't much fun! DS's old school didn't care what was brought in for these sort of things.
