In light of the many food allergies and dietary restrictions that are a part of our students’ lives, as well as our interest in supporting students’ development of healthy eating habits, and in preserving instructional time, food will not be a part of birthdays and holidays at Schilling. Classroom celebrations of the holidays are conducted in a variety of ways which may include games, crafts, and sing-alongs. Additionally, balloon, floral, and outside deliveries for student birthdays are not permitted during the school day.

In-class curricular activities and/or rewards earned by the class which involve food (e.g., multi-cultural and PBIS events) will be at the teacher’s discretion.
