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:
