Valentine's Day Candy Grams

I am a classroom teacher and this is the 5th year I've done this at my school. My first year was with grade 2's (yes I survived) and the other times was with grade fours. I have templates for the grams, flyers home, letter to teachers and a newsletter blurb. If you (or anyone else) emails me, I can send you the stuff in attachment form. My email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. I can also give you some tips on making things run smoothly, and how to get a class involved.

HI all,

We do these. We call them Val-O-Grams. Our 5th grade does it and uses the money for an end-of-the-year field trip. We take a bunch of clip art and copy them onto 8.5x11 sheets of paper. We then have a To:, Teacher:,From:, and Message. We sell them for the week up until Valentine's and deliver them to the classrooms on the 13th and 14th. We sell them 25 cents without candy and 50 cents with candy attached. We sell them before school, during lunch and after school. I can fax you what we're using this year if you'd like to see them. Just email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Good luck,
Holly

New plan for us. Students will be able to purchase a lolligram (whatever we are going to call them) during homeroom. They are going to get a container to keep the orders in. The student council and STLP students are going to help fix them up and deliver them.

We thought of doing that at our school but we didn't want any kids to feel left out; not all parents would even buy a $1 lollipop for their kids at my school believe it or not. Did you have this problem and if we did how to we deal with it?
