Guidelines for Classroom Celebrations
Due to dietary guidelines set by the state, it is important that we (within reason) celebrate with these ideas in mind.
The New Jersey School Nutrition Policy states specifically foods that list SUGAR as the First ingredient to be Prohibited from being served in the classroom at school.
For our 3 classroom celebrations please take a look at the food suggestions listed below and on the following page, also keep in mind the wishes of the teacher as well. The party snacks need to fall within the health guidelines.
It is very important to be aware of any allergies especially nuts, also please adhere to any dietary restrictions in your class. Please confirm allergies with your child’s teacher and pay special attention to parent’s notes that will be indicated on the forms sent home to collect money for the party.
