Clip to ScrapBook #8

I teach 7th/8th and I still bring them a little valentine. Possibly. Cultural consideration but in my ELL room, no one gives a ratís behind about Christmas, but I get a lot on Valentine's Day! I love it!

I donít think thereís necessarily a problem with skipping the fanfare; however, it is super important that all the staff are on the same page. So if everyone agrees to having a party...then you really should have a party.

Iím sorry youíre getting pushback. Maybe next year, you can include this information in an ďimportant datesĒ section on your welcome letter as a preview up the year or something.
