One Martensville mother decided that she wasn’t going to let COVID stop her daughter and classmates from celebrating Valentine’s Day together this year.
Nicole Walter, who’s daughter attends grade 1 at École Holy Mary Catholic School wanted to create a safe environment for the class to still exchange Valentine’s Day treats to one another since the school itself chose to celebrate in a different way this year.
“I wanted to make sure all of the kids felt included and special and had something fun to still do. So many things have been cancelled on them already. It may just be silly little cards and treats, but they are super excited and all of the parents were on board, so I am glad we could do this,” Walter said.
Walter and her daughter Haddie spent the weekend prior to Valentine’s Day constructing boxes for each of the 19 kids in Haddie’s class. Originally planned to be held outside, plans changed due to the weather and Walter set up a station within her garage and invited the class to stop by between 4:30pm-8:00pm on Wednesday, February 10th to deliver their Valentines one family at a time. The following night, Walter delivered each of the boxes to the homes of the students.
