Valentine Cards

Valentine's Day cards are given to everyone. We get one from people we don’t know and from people we do know. Valentine cards are supposed to make you feel love, joy, happiness, and a lot of other emotions that I can’t explain. We get a lot of cards, but what about the children in the hospital?

Mrs. Witt, who is in charge of Student Council, has challenged the Student Council members to create cards for the sick children in the hospital. These cards will make the kids feel special and important. When they receive these cards there eyes will fill with tears and the emotions will go wild. It is a very nice thing to do and kind of the Student Council members to think of others that need some cheering up.

The MMS Student Council asks that YOU create some Valentine cards and they will make sure they get to those who need them!
