5th Grade Class

Woodland Elementary is proud to provide a safe and healthy school environment for all students.  To ensure safety for all, a list of acceptable foods that can be brought into the classroom for snack has been developed. 

Please note that if a food item that is not on the list is sent in with your child, the item will be returned home with a reminder of the safe snack choices.

Birthday Celebrations


While it is not a requirement, some families choose to celebrate their child’s birthday at school.  It is highly recommended to send in a non-edible treat for the celebration.  Examples include:  donating a book or puzzle to the classroom or providing a pencil, eraser, bookmark etc. for each child in the class.

If your family chooses to send in an edible treat, it must be on the list provided below. 

Safe Birthday Edible Treats
