Parties and Birthday Celebrations
PartiesTypically, there are four classroom parties per year (Halloween, Winter Holidays, Valentine’s Day, and End-of-Year celebration). Parents may be solicited to donate paper goods, food, and other party items. RUSD policy prohibits goody bags, hired entertainment, and collecting money for parties. Classroom parties must adhere to the RUSD wellness policy. The Wellness Committee strongly recommends limiting sugary treats.

Birthday celebrations follow the RUSD Healthy Snacks & Rewards Policy. Your classroom teacher will honor your child on his/her special day in the classroom. Birthdays are also recognized during school-wide assemblies. Please do not send in balloons, flower bouquets, birthday cakes, sweets, foods or goody bags. Birthday or any other invitations may not be distributed at school.
