Birthdays & Celebrations

Celebration Time
Recent changes in legislation and district policy have affected how birthdays are celebrated at school. Because of concerns about childhood obesity, legislation has been passed that limits the food that can be given to children at school. We understand parents like to celebrate their child’s special day by bringing treats to school for their class, but we ask you to follow these guidelines:
  • Always speak to the teacher several days in advance. Celebrating your child is very important to us, but the teacher will need to look at his/her instructional program and plan accordingly.
  • Consider sending individual goody-bags of wrapped treats or prizes to be sent home at the end of the day.
  • Think about buying a non-food present for the classroom such as a book or a game!
