No school?

You are the second person I've heard from that doesn't have school tomorrow! Is it because of valentines day and is it a teacher work day?

I have school tomorrow and I'll be doing a valentines day party. Honestly, I think that you should do a celebration on valentines day (even if it's not a party) If you teach grades pre-k-1st grade. I can see not doing a celebration after that age since giving them could get embarrassing or awkward after that age, but I personally would probably still recognize it in any grade if I was the teacher.

That being said, I don't know why other teachers care so much. Last year we had several teachers not do anything holiday related. No thanksgiving themed stuff, or winter themes, or valentines day theme. I thought it sounded boring since I personally enjoy the day off from regular teaching, but I definitely didn't judge them for it.

It's your classroom, do what you want.
