Woo-hoo! We made it through the first three days of the new school year. I hope your kiddos had a great few days in fifth grade. They are going to learn, laugh and grow a lot this school year. I wanted to post important dates, as well as a reminder about food for holiday parties.

REMINDER: With the increase of allergies and health conditions among our student population, outside food/treats/candy are no longer allowed to be brought into the schools for elementary classroom holiday parties (Halloween, Winter, and Valentine’s Day). Students are happy to receive stickers, pencils, and/or do craft projects during the 45-minute holiday parties and this new procedure will significantly minimize or eliminate risks to our students and the amount of food thrown away. If room parents organizing a holiday party feel strongly about providing a food item or treat for the entire classroom, they may work with the classroom teacher and the District’s food service provider, Sodexo, to select an item from the “safe foods” list. Please note: If the decision is made by the room parent(s) to order a food item from Sodexo for a holiday party, the cost of providing the item is the responsibility of the parent(s) organizing the party. Parents may be asked for (but are not required to provide) a monetary donation to help cover the cost of the food. Alternatively, instead of asking parents to donate treats, snacks, etc. for parties like they’ve done in the past, parents can be encouraged to donate other items, such as stickers, pencils, craft supplies, etc. to offset party costs for activities.
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions for our classroom.
