We have asked that parents do not bring in outside food because of allergies and the high amount of sugar in those products. Parents can buy each student a gift such as pencils for the class, notebooks for each student etc. in honor of their child’s birthday. Teachers must choose a time that does not interrupt instructional time (i.e lunch and recess) to recognize the student and their special day. Parents are encouraged to bring in healthy food and serve and celebrate during lunch if they wish to bring food. Cake, cupcakes and cookies are not permitted.
