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!
