So, I get this note...
So, I get this note home from school today.
Factoid: I have a son. He's six. He's in First Grade.
The note is from the First Grade Teachers (three classes) to all the First Grade Families.
It says: Here is a class list to use when making Valentine's Day cards. Please make sure that you have a card for every child in the class. We will be celebrating Valentine's Day on Tuesday, February 14th.
Question: When did the word 'when' replace the word 'if'?
Question: Why is it okay to celebrate SAINT Valentine's Day in school but so many other holidays are taboo?
Question: What other day might you celebrate Valentine's Day on besides February 14th?
Now, really, I'm not knockin' the teachers. This is fun for the kids.
They will laugh and giggle and get all red in the face. The boys will punch the girls or pull their hair to show their affection and the girls will secretly plot their early demise. It's all in good fun.
But, I guess I'll have to either make *shiver* or buy 24 little Valentines with my son so he won't be the only kid who didn't give them out.
Honestly, I'm still cracking the whip on him to finish his thank you cards from Christmas.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Have to do this too?
