There are 31 students in our class, and severe peanut allergies (tree nuts). Please talk amongst yourselves to decide what you would like to bring/send in.

Some ideas are: napkins, small plates, individual small water bottles or individual juice boxes, small cupcakes or cookies, fruit salad/fruit (maybe the kids can make fruit kabobs? an interactive healthy idea?) or anything you think would be liked and appreciated by 31 first graders (ice cream or ice pops are very much welcome, too!). I trust your judgement and we thank you in advance. We do also have a school-wide no candy policy.

NO CANDY, NO WHOLE CAKES, NO glass items, NO JUGS please. Thank you!
