There will be two official class parties during the school year including a Christmas and Valentine party. A new wellness initiative was implemented in the 2014-2015 school year and you will be receiving specific information in your child’s beginning of the year packet on this topic. At East Side we adhere to these policies by prohibiting sugary snacks for birthday celebrations. If you plan to send in a birthday treat for your child’s special day, please clear this with the classroom teacher in advance. Alternative celebration items are suggested on the wellness form.
