Happy Valentine's Day

It was a love-filled Valentine's Day at our school. Four of the ladies of the staff got Valentine's Day flowers today... including me! Two bouquets of roses were delivered to our morning staff meeting to our PreK/K and 1st-3rd grade teachers. One expected it. Her husband gives her flowers for everything. It's a sweet happy non-surprise for her each time the flowers arrive. But the other teacher was not expecting anything at all, so was caught completely off guard. It was so much fun to see her absolute surprise and delight. Our office manager received a small bouquet of tulips from one of the students and her mother.

I actually received two beautiful plants. A mini-rose bush from a colleague and his family and a pair of cyclamen from my sister and nephew. I, too, was surprised and delighted. I had not expected anything.

In addition to these sweet remembrances, one of the teachers brought in strawberry shortcake muffins for our morning meeting (oh, so delicious) and the Spanish classes made Valentine's Day cards for all the staff (in Spanish).

Hope it was as nice for others as it was for us!

Oh yeah, it was Valentine's today! Kinda forgot... However, I did make some heart-shaped lemon-blueberry muffins this morning and I shared "whole hearts" and "broken hearts" with a few of my (hungry) colleagues. Really like the bulletin board with the heart puzzle. Very creative!

Sounds like you go all out for V's day at your school. I like the first poster and will have to recreate it for our Sunday School sometime.

The bulletin board is outside our PreK-3 classroom. The teacher of this class is amazing. She built the program from 3 students to 12 students within a few months. Each month she has a different theme, with elaborate bulletin boards and decorations in the room. Everyone loves her!

See... this is why I love Valentine's Day at school. So many nice things happen to people and I think everyone is just a bit nicer and smile a bit more on that special day. What beautiful flowers you received!
