“Wee Deliver” Post Office

Walnut Avenue School’s Valentine’s Day “Wee Deliver” Post office will be operational beginning Thursday, February 1 through Tuesday, February 13.

Students are invited to send Valentine cards to their friends in other classes, teammates, fellow Scouts and Faculty members. Cards may be mailed in the big pink mailbox located in the lobby near the Main Office. In following with the food/allergy policy, no food or candy can be exchanged. If you would like to add a small trinket or non-food item, please attach it securely to the card. Valentine cards will be delivered to the classrooms by our 2nd Grade “Postal Workers” during their recess time. Each classroom will have its own mailbox for the children to exchange Valentine’s with their classmates.
