Program cover: anything goes here in terms of media. I will need a hi resolution .jpg for printing, but the media options are endless as a scan or a picture of the art will be the "deliverable". This could be a watercolor, pen and ink, pencil, charcoal, colored pencil,
markers, digital art, mixed media, etc, etc, etc, The possibilities are endless! The size of the original work is moot, as the .jpg will
be scaled up or down to fit the intended use on the cover, posted on the FFPA website and possibly posters.

Valentines for Vets due 2/8/17
Twenty-seven years ago syndicated newspaper columnist Ann Landers encouraged her readers to send Valentine's
Day cards to veterans in VA facilities across the United States. Millions of Valentine's Day cards, letters, and
packages have been delivered to veterans since then. The Valentines for Vets program continues today with
schoolchildren gathering handmade and store-bought valentines, writing encouraging words, and mailing them. I am
asking that you and your students join me again for this year's Valentines for Vets event. Last year, with your help,
we delivered over 7,000 Valentine's Day cards.
To honor and support our veterans, I will be collecting and delivering Valentine's Day cards to local veterans during
the holiday period. School teachers can use this activity to educate young people about the importance of honoring
veterans, especially those who are hospitalized.
Teachers' schedule 15 minutes in their class to have students write the Valentines, collect them in an envelope, and
deliver the envelope to the principal's office. I know that our veterans will be delighted to receive handmade
Valentine's Day cards from your students. Please refrain from using glitter, as some veterans may be allergic.
There are two ways that you can submit your Valentine's Day cards. They may be sent to my District Office at the
Alternatively, you may send the Valentine's Day cards to me by putting them in the County Office pony to the
attention of Marco Chavez, Administrator, Board Support and Community Relations at the San Mateo County
Office of Education. This will allow for quick delivery and eliminate the need for postage. Mr. Chavez will then
forward them to my office. Please submit your student's Valentines greetings by Monday, February 8th.
If you would like your Valentine's Day greetings to be picked up by a member of my staff prior to the deadline,
please contact my Constituent Services Director, Mark Nagales, at (650) 342-0300 or via email at
I hope I will have the privilege of delivering your students' cards to our nation's veterans. Together, we can make
their Valentine's Day a little brighter.
