THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14: VALENTINE'S DAY
We believe that Valentine's Day can bring out the kid in all of us. It's fun to trade cards and show our appreciation and love towards each other. Valentines' treats don't have to be sticky, sugary candy. 

If your child(ren) plan(s) to bring treats for Valentine's Day this year, they must be non-edible, non-candy options. Read the Miraloma Treats Policy.

Additionally, please remember that sometimes a nice gesture for one person or a small group can lead, unintentionally, to the exclusion of others. Since we value inclusivity at Miraloma, please work with your child to make sure Valentine's gestures keep things on the inclusive side.
