Food Requirements for Classroom Parties: 

All food brought into the school for classroom parties, must be pre-packaged/store bought. For example, if you are planning to have grapes, please have the grapes brought into school in the original store package and wash in the classroom (all classrooms have sinks) or sausage, cheese and crackers–bring into school in the original package and cut at school prior to serving. 

Please limit snacks to 1 sweet treat and the remainder healthy.

Also, only water may be served as drinks, no juice or pop will be allowed into the classrooms.

If you have any questions, in regards to the above, please contact your Head Room Parent.
