Student of the Week:Unfortunately there is not enough time in our schedule for Show & Tell. In lieu of this, we will begin a "Student of the Week" in October where your child is encouraged to bring in small items that fit in their bookbag to share with the class that will tell us more about your child. More information will come home on this soon. This is optional. If your child does not feel comfortable sharing with us, they are not obligated to participate however most of the students love to share and we will encourage participation. If your child chooses to bring in something then please discuss the item with your child so they are prepared to talk about it instead of just show it.Snacks: We are a PEANUT/NUT FREE CLASSROOM!We will have snack every day in my classroom shortly before lunch. Each child is encouraged to bring in their own healthy snack each day: fruits, veggies, cheese; however a class snack list was sent home with approved snacks that are allowed in the classroom. This allows each child to have something that they like to eat, especially with so many special health needs and/or allergies. No sharing of individual snacks is allowed. If by chance your child forgets their snack then a class snack can be provided for them. Examples: Gold Fish, Pretzels, Cheese-its, Fruit Snacks, Animal Crackers.
Birthdays:Celebrating birthdays are a major highlight in Elementary school, so birthday treats are definitely welcomed! Please let me know if and when your child plans to bring in their birthday treat . Do keep in mind as much as we'd love to have home baked goodies it is our school's policy that all treats must be prepackaged and labels checked for nut free products.*** Private birthday party invitations should not be sent with your child to school. They should be sent through the mail. Invitations can ONLY be passed out in the classroom if EVERY STUDENT is invited.*** Thank you for your understanding and cooperation! :)
