Learning Project - Cheque Presentation - Classy Cyborgs

My name is Jenna Pezzack and I am one of 10 students from Aurora, Ontario who are part of the Classy Cyborgs team.

Valentine's Day

By Adam Dolgin

I remember being a kid and loving Valentine's Day. Writing out all those personal cards to all the girls in my class, hoping those girls all wrote cards back to me. But, the sad truth was, I wasn't that popular.
