Wellness

The objectives of our Student Wellness Policy are to promote student health and reduce childhood obesity. 

If you want to celebrate your child’s birthday during the school day, please consider:

  • A sticker or pencil makes an inexpensive treat for every child in the classroom.
  • A book donated to the classroom library in your child’s honor, makes a gift that everyone can enjoy.
  • A craft that the students can create in the classroom is also a fun option. Please schedule this ahead with your child’s teacher.
  • If you want to supply food/snacks for a treat, please consider an option from the healthy food snack list below:
