Birthday Celebrations/Treats for Students

Thank you so much to parents/guardians who have already provided treats and/or school supplies for students while celebrating birthdays in the classroom.  We appreciate your efforts very much.  For others who might be interested in this activity, please provide treats that are store bought and be aware that we have students who have peanut allergies.  We will deliver items to your child’s classroom when you drop them off.  Thanks!

Fidgets/Pokemon Cards/Toys

We have asked students to leave Fidgets, Pokemon Cards and Toys at home during the school day unless they have been permitted by their teacher.  Unfortunately, they sometimes become a distraction and disruption.  With constant educational activities including various centers, STEM activities, computer math games and many other classroom resources, we hope to keep students very engaged.  Also, students have days when they are invited to bring special items to school.
