Candy-free School Valentine Pledge

Valentine’s Day is prac­ti­cally syn­ony­mous with pink hearts, red roses and—if you have school-age kids—back­packs stuffed with candy.

Would you like to help keep Valentine’s candy out of school this year? Take the Candy-free School Valen­tine Pledge–and encour­age other par­ents, your child’s teacher, your school prin­ci­pal and/or your PTA to join you!

I, _____________________________, pledge to do my part in keening candy out of the classroom this Valentine’s Day.

If you’re a par­ent, here’s what you can do:

  • Send a candy-free Valen­tine to school with your child
  • Talk to other par­ents, your child’s teacher and/or your school prin­ci­pal about hav­ing a candy-free school Valentine’s Day
  • Ask to dis­trib­ute a list of candy-free Valen­tine ideas to par­ents and teachers
  • Share the Candy-free School Valen­tine Pledge at school and on social media

If you’re a teacher or school administrator, here’s what you can do:

  • Encour­age stu­dents and par­ents to send candy-free Valen­tines to school
  • Dis­trib­ute a list of candy-free Valen­tine ideas to par­ents and teachers
  • Share the Candy-free School Valen­tine Pledge at school and on social media
