Valentine’s Day has become known for heart-shaped boxes full of chocolates, giant stuffed animals, and dozens of roses. Yet, the love behind it has not become lost.

  All across Heritage students were seen with hands full of gifts from their peers and bags full of goods to hand out.

  “I miss the days back in elementary school where we would pass out candy to everyone in our class,” said Halle Dawite (12).

   Unlike elementary school, gifts are no longer required from all students – but Heritage was still full of love and gifts for everyone.

   Rather than only celebrating couples in relationships, many students took it upon themselves to make sure everyone felt the love.

  Heritage leadership students went through the student parking lot and left notes on each car wishing each student a happy Valentine’s Day.

  “It was nice to leave school and see that note when I opened my car door, little things like that really bring a smile to my face,” said Aorzala Atmar (12).

  Other than leadership, individual students also printed out Valentine’s Day cards to hand out as they walked amongst their peers to ensure that nobody felt alone.

  ” I thought it would be a good idea, I know everyone is going through things personally and nobody should feel alone on Valentine’s Day,” said Sarah Gomez who passed out cards throughout the day.

  Leadership also played movies during patriot plus to celebrate “Singles Awareness Day” for students who were feeling left out because of their lack of a significant other.

  Also celebrated was “Galentine’s Day” in which friends gathered to celebrate each other rather than their significant others.

   Galentine’s Day was exciting for many groups of friends who made plans for the night of February 14th in which they could spend time together.

  Feeling lonely was not prevalent on the Heritage campus this Valentine’s Day because of each and every student that went out of their way to make their peers feel included and endeared.

  Valentine’s Day at Heritage was full of love and it was obviously seen throughout the campus. The patriot pride flowed throughout the student body and was reflected in the happy smiles across the school.
