Food for Thought: Classroom Parties
With Valentine’s Day parties on the horizon, District 34 reminds parents about the guidelines for food at classroom parties. Though there is no food at birthday celebrations, you can bring food for holiday parties, as long as they meet the guidelines posted here.
A few important points:
- Foods must have nutrient value and be low in fat, sugar and calories (so, candy is not an option)
- You must provide store-bought items in original packaging (homemade foods are not allowed)

We appreciate all that parent volunteers do to make celebrations special -- and healthy -- for students!
