We at Valentine School want to encourage

“Healthy Choices” at home and at school.

Monday, October 22nd                                                  Sock it to Soda Day

Wear wacky or mismatched socks.  Students will receive a red ribbon for their backpack. Tie a ribbon around your tree. Today's message is about drinking less soda & choosing healthier beverages.

Tuesday, October 23rd                                                    Sports or Team Shirt Day

Wear your favorite sports shirt to support a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise.  


Wednesday, October 24th                                            Valentine Spirit & Banner Pledge Day


Students wear Valentine caps, shirts, or sweatshirts to school to show off their school spirit. Students will sign a banner at lunchtime and receive self-adhesive ribbons (or stickers) to remind them of their pledge to live a healthy lifestyle.



Thursday, October 25th                                                  Choose a Healthy Diet Day & Pledge Night


Students bring a favorite fruit or vegetable to class and eat it with their lunch.  Tonight, we encourage families to discuss ways they can have a healthier diet.  Students who return their pledge cards will be entered into a raffle for a gift certificate from the Yogurtland

Students wear red to school. Red has been chosen as the symbolic color of a healthy lifestyle.
