Hi there! Every year, I send home an introductory letter on the first day of school. I include basic information like special subjects schedules, our lunch time, contact numbers, email, etc. I also discuss one of the most favorite times of the day for my kiddos...snack time!
I decided this year to send a separate letter home regarding snack. I have noticed in the past few years that children are bringing in a lot of "junk food" and even candy. Now, don't get me wrong, I love chips and cookies just like everybody else, but I really think the children need a good nutritious snack to keep those smart brains sharp and ready to learn!
I have tried to encourage healthy snacks over the years, but I decided that I needed to specifically address it in a letter to parents. I did not include any information regarding food allergies because this changes year to year and we typically get a letter from our school nurse regarding classroom allergies.
Here is a copy for all of you!
