At my old school we were not allowed to have bday parties for the kids during class time. The parents can bring treats in the morning to be passed out at recess only. At that time I thought they were missing out. These were first graders. Now that I am at another school where all the teachers allowed parties at the end of the day, being the new teacher I just went along with it. Oh whoever said that sugar does not cause hyperness was wrong!!! How they change when a parent is in the room, even if it is not their own parent! I want to change my bday policy. Do you all have written policies about bday parties? Can you share please? Thanks so much!
