Happy Valentine's Day! on PhotoPeach


What is your favorite way to celebrate Valentine's Day?

Do you have any special Valentine facts to share?


  1. Dear Class,

    Did you know that King Henry VII from England officially made February 14th Valentine's Day? 2012 minus 1537, the year it became official, equals how many years we have been celebrating it. I hope you like the fact I've shared.

    See you in class,

    1. Dear Nate,

      I found how many years we have all celebrated Valentine's Day. The first thing I did is subtract 2012 and 1537, and I got the answer 475.

      Best wishes,

  2. Dear Mrs.Ranney,

    On valentine's Day my family and I decorate the living room with hearts because we like to celebrate this fun tradition.

    Best wishes,


  3. Dear class,

    Valentine's Day is honored by a Christian named Valentinus. We celebrate it for our loved ones. What I like to do on Valentine's Day is celebrate it with my family and also pass out valentines at school.

    See you soon,

    P.S. I wish you a very Happy Valentines Day, Oliver I also wish you a very happy birthday.

  4. Dear Class,

    My favorite way of celebrating Valentine's Day is being with my family. Valentine's Day came from a nice cleric named Valentine who died long ago.


  5. Dear Mrs.Ranney and class,
    My favorite thing about Valentines Day is that we get to spend time and love with our family and friends. After school I went to a fancy restaurant where we get to dance with our family.

    See you later,

  6. Dear Mrs.Ranney and Class

    Her are two things that I like about Valentine's day.The first thing I like about Valentine's day is I get to celebrate with my family. The second thing I like is all of the baked goods.
    I like sharing Valentines fact with you!

  7. Dear Mrs. Ranney and class,
