There are 14 girls and 5 boys. Please only write who the Valentine is from,do not address the 'to' section of the Valentine.This will make handing out the Valentines a lot easier for our friends and will take less time to fill out at home. Each child will decorate a bag inclass to use to collect their Valentines!
