School Policies

Guidelines for Healthy Celebrations

Please consider the following guidelines when acknowledging a child’s birthday or planning a class party.

Don’t forget to discuss your ideas with your child’s teacher prior to the event.



Class Parties   When planning a class party, make FUN the focal point. Consider these options:

  • Organize physical activity games like relay races and scavenger hunts
  • Create stations that include art, music, or cooking
  • Arrange a community service project
  • Allow ONE special treat per party
  • Have parties after lunch


Make it fun by serving food on festive plates with fancy toothpicks

Birthdays  To recognize your child on his or her special day, please consider non-food related ideas.

  • Bring inexpensive party favors to hand out to classmates (pencils, stickers, erasers)
  • Have your child give a gift to the classroom in his/her name (athletic equipment, books, board games, puzzles)
