School Parties/Birthday Snacks

In response to the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004: We will be having a healthy focus for school activities and parties in your classrooms.


  • It is highly encouraged for students to bring a book for the classroom library, pencils, stickers, etc. if they would like to celebrate with the class.
  • Whatever the item, please do not have students walk to other classrooms (or the office) to share.  Extras could be taken to the Staff Lounge if the child chooses to share them with the staff.
  • Frequently, parents ask to celebrate birthdays by bringing treats for the entire class, these celebrations interfere with the instructional day, parents may not attend class birthday celebrations nor pass out treats.  
  • Parents will not be allowed to deliver treats to classrooms. All treats will be brought into school with the students or dropped off in the office and Hamilton Staff or student leaders will deliver them.
