Candy in the classroom
Valentines Day is coming, candy is slowly being under played in many schools. Others classes work with sweets all week long.
Yes candy is still often taped or attached to cards as kids exchange Valentine greetings. I have seen in several stores Valentines cards in packages, along with themed pencils, or stickers.
There is candy that is allergy safe, but kids really have enough candy, sweets and treats. I'm glad to see so many cards coming out with non food items, in stores.
Once again candy grams are being sent in our school, children (for 50 cents each) send a note and piece of candy to classmates, with proceeds going to the school. I donate allergy friendly candies for this. The teacher and students involved know what candies, my daughter can receive.
