February Lifeskill Focus: Integrity

Dress for the Weather

Our students go outside for morning recess and lunch recess.  Sending your child to school with clothing that will keep them warm and dry makes their time outside much more enjoyable.  Having an extra set of pants in their backpack is a good idea in case a change of clothing is needed.

If you need assistance with clothing, please let the office know.

Classroom Celebrations

We are implementing the district’s Wellness Policy which will impact how we celebrate birthdays and special events around school.  If you have traditionally sent in treats with your child, please be aware that sugary foods such as cupcakes will no longer be allowed.  We know how meaningful birthdays are and we still look forward to celebrating with your child. Your child’s teacher can discuss alternative options with you specifically, but below you will find several suggestions of non-food or healthy alternatives:

Birthdays and Holidays Without Food

  • Allow extra recess time instead of classroom party time. Birthday students can lead an active game for everyone.
  • Have dance parties. Birthday students can lead and pick out the music.
  • Instead of candy-filled birthday or holiday bags, have party bags with non-edible items (trinkets, school supplies such as colored pencils, erasers, markers, bookmarks, stickers, etc.).
  • Play special active party games. Birthday students can lead.
  • Read a book related to the party theme. Parents can purchase a book for the classroom or check one out from the school library in their child’s name for their birthday and come to school to read the book.

Healthy Food and Beverage Ideas

  • Air popped popcorn (without the butter)
  • Fresh fruit assortments (store bought)
  • Fruit sundae bar party with fresh fruit, low-fat yogurt, and granola.
  • Vegetable trays (store bought)
