In 5th grade, many students exchange valentines, but some do not. It is optional. The rule we have made is that if you bring them, you need to bring enough for everyone in the class. As for bringing valentines for students in Mrs. Proulx's class, we will give them a few minutes to switch rooms during recess on the 12th (not during the party on the 11th), and they do not need to bring valentines for Mrs. Proulx's entire class, just for one or a few friends if they want to. Here is a classroom list if you want to print it: Roster Sheets 5th Grade 2015-2016
