Quoting hollydaze1974:

No exchanging valentines in middle school at least. ( thank God, I hated that! Lol)

Me too!!  Honestly, I only kinda liked it as a kid.  As I got older....it just bugs me.

Well, my son HATED to write and refused to unless it was a graded you think he was gonna write Samantha??hah!

We'd get the list of names and he'd just write R.J. on the " from " side :-)

Besides, it's gone a bit far! The elaborate valentines with pencils and then M&M s stapled to it! Good grief! Being my son was, well my son. We did dollar store valentines and just the cards!

OP, in middle school ( for me) we did candy grams .... Parents bought em and girls bought them for bff's :-) no guys bought them... Kinda like adult males, lol !

My 5th graders are having a party.  I don't know if they will have an exchange.  One of the room moms with too much time on her hands has made the party much more complicated than it needs to be.  It was suggested that people contribute money instead of buying the cards.

I'm not sure what's going to happen with that but my girls still want to do the cards and are offended that they may not get to do the exchange.

 Yes, My DD is in 5th grade, she is supposed to sign her name to the valentines but not address them to the other students so they are just given randomly.
