This Valentine’s Day, The SPOKE gave students and staff the opportunity to express their affection for their classmates. Students took advantage of the opportunity to shout out to friends and the special people in their lives. It’s important to note that Valentine’s Day is not only for romantic love; platonic love is as duly important as any fleeting high school relationship. Cherish the constant people in your lives and reflect this Valentine’s Day on their importance to you.
