BE SWEET TO OTHERS DAY
Valentines Day is celebrated a bit differently at Meridian. Classroom teachers will instruct students on how they can share valentine cards with their friends. However, this is not one of the three allowed Texas "non-healthy food" days (which are done in October, December and May at our socials/parties), so no candy exchange will be allowed. The focus of this day will be on being a valentine to others who need us and our support. This is something that we did last year and it was an amazing experience. Having taken place just before our IB evaluation, our evaluators themselves took pictures of the work the students did and the idea has spread in the IB community.
