Kindergarten Guidelines

We recognize that special celebrations create wonderful social times and memories for our students.  We ask that as room parents plan the games or activities and treats, they go over every aspect of the party with the classroom teacher at least a week in advance of the party.  So that all classes enjoy similar events, please follow these guidelines:

  • No more than four parents present at a party (please refrain from bringing siblings).
  • Expenses not to exceed $25 per party.  Please try to get the parents involved by asking for donations before buying something.  Parents like to help out and get involved.   Please turn in all receipts or reimbursements to the office with a check request form, in an envelop marked PTO Treasurer.
  • Please designate one parent to take  pictures for the year book at each party.

Specific Parties:

  • Halloween Party is 1 hour with treats and games.  Only room parents are present.
    • 12:30 - four room parents will assist the kids with putting on their costumes
    • 1:00 - parade will be outside if weather permits; otherwise an alternate plan will be made
    • 1:20 - class parties
    • Food: It is essential to talk to the teacher about any allergies and to avoid those products. In order to keep our children healthy, we recommend one salty snack item, one sweet dessert item, and one healthy item.
  • Winter Party is organized school wide at lunch.  Room parents do not plan this event but may be called to assist. Click the link for more details and contact information.
    • The Holiday Party will be during lunch, from 11:00 - 12:30.   The PTO will provide pizza for lunch for all of the kids.  The schedule will be lunch, recess, and a half hour in the class room for games.
    • While your class is at recess, room parents will assist in the lunch room serving pizza and supervising.  We will also provide a “thank you” lunch to the lunch room staff during that time. 
    • Also during lunch a reading of “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” will be done by a guest.
