The Magic of Learning

Classroom Celebrations & Birthday Guidelines


It is customary in the elementary schools of the township to have a Halloween Party, a holiday party in December, and end-of-the-year party for the children.  These parties are planned by the teachers and the PTO Room Parents.  In order to defray expenses and provide refreshments for the three parties, we collect a small contribution from each child.  Parents who volunteer to assist with class activities and parties ARE NOT to bring younger siblings to the event without the teacher’s approval.
