Birthday Celebrations

    Please read before bringing food items for your student's birthday to the school.

    Federal Legislation requires that snacks given to students during the school day meet the federal health standards. The approved list of snacks, known as the "Smart Snacks for Schools List" is posted below. Parents should consult this list before bringing food to the classroom. 

    An option for birthday celebrations that don't include snacks is for families to purchase their child's favorite picture book and donate it to the classroom.  The teacher will read the book to the class that day and the class will celebrate the student.  The birthday student can sign the book on the front cover so that everyone can remember that it was donated as their favorite book for their birthday.  It will stay in the classroom for years to come.

    If your family prefers to give out treats, the district has some restrictions on what type of food can be brought and what type of packaging it comes in.

    Here is a link to the list of approved food/snack items:  Smart Snacks for Schools

    Please check with your child's teacher to make sure your child's classroom does not have any food allergies. 

    Thank you :)

    We also have monthly exemption days when unapproved snacks can be brought into the school. Please contact your student's teacher regarding these exemption days before bringing in any food items.
