Please send your child with his/her backpack each day and check them after school each day! Birthdays: You are more than welcome to bring treats to school to celebrate your child’s birthday. Treats must be store bought and it helps to have them in individual servings. A new rule was passed that no homemade treats may be brought to school to share with the class due to allergies.
