Austintown Elementary School had their Valentine’s Day classroom party on Feb. 14, and the intermediate school had their parties on Feb. 15.

The PTA members of the respective schools visited and organized the parties. Both schools decided to have their party at the end of the day.

Bethany Martinez, PTA president of the elementary school, said the PTA classroom parties are a long standing tradition that gives the children a fun party. Similarly, Patty Herman, the AIS PTA president, said the party lets the students have fun and take a break from their hard work.

The PTA provided snacks and materials for the parties. Each classroom had something different in terms of games and crafts. For example, Kristina Warga’s kindergarten class played bingo, while Alexis Kuhns’s third grade class made Valentine cards.

The students brought in boxes so their classmates could put their Valentine’s gifts in them. The schools saw all types of boxes. Some students had small decorated shoeboxes, while others went with more flair. One fifth grade student had a large dinosaur box, and a fourth grade student had a Spiderman box.

Both schools had their parties for about an hour. The students’ joy could be heard in the hallways of the school as they happily cheered during games.
