We love celebrating birthdays at Regal, but would like to ask your support
as we create a healthier tradition. Please do not send birthday treats to
school. Throughout our district, over 30% of our children are dealing with
overweight and obesity issues and Spokane Public Schools is committed to
creating a healthy food environment that will model good food choices. The
concerns around food in the classroom include: obesity issues, life-threatening
allergies, sanitation concerns, and rodent/pest control.
At Regal, every morning during announcements we acknowledge those students
celebrating birthdays for the day and any students celebrating over the weekend.
Also, once each month our wonderful kitchen staff makes cookies for ALL of our
students (regardless of whether they have hot lunch or bring their own lunch)
and we celebrate those students who have birthdays that month.
