Last week, students at Mariam Boyd, Northside, and South Warren Elementary penned "Vegetable Valentines": love letters to their favorite fruits and vegetables. We celebrated the treats that don't need added sugar to be sweet. Of course, students came up with lots of deliciously creative notes! Here are a couple photos of the bulletin board (on the right) at Northside K-8 featuring Valentines crafted by 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th graders!

Wishing everyone a healthy & happy Valentine's Day!

Some delightful entries from Northside’s 2nd graders:

"Dear Orange,
I love you and you are delicious and you have Vitamin C. I really appreciate it for keeping me healthy. I just really love eating you.
Love, Your secret admirer"

Dear strawberry,
I will always love you my red friend […] and I just want you to know that to me you are berry cool.

Dear Watermelon,
Apples are Red
Blueberrys are blue
Those 2 are sweet
And so are you…
Love, Jordan
