St. Valentine's Celebration Day February 13th

 

We are holding our St. Valentine’s Celebration this coming Tuesday, February 13. Ash Wednesday is February 14. Students are invited to wear Valentine colors and Valentine-themed free dress (jeans are okay).

St. Valentine’s Day has become a nation-wide celebration, but it, as with many of our holidays, has roots in our religious traditions. There are several legends surrounding St. Valentine. The one that carries the most meaning for our children tells the story of a St. Valentine who left notes of support to followers of
Jesus. These notes of support evolved into our Valentine notes. If your child wishes to share valentines on Tuesday during our Celebration Day, make sure he/she sends in one for every child in the class.
