Student Birthday Celebrations

Thank you for taking the time to review the following school policy which can be found in the Chalker Parent / Student Handbook.

For children’s birthdays, treats may be brought during lunch time only, for the teacher to distribute to the students. We are promoting a more health conscience approach to birthday treats and ask that you consider bringing mini cupcakes or something more nutritious. Please do not bring party favors, balloons, etc. to the classrooms as this can interrupt valuable instructional time.

Please coordinate all birthday treats beforehand with the classroom teacher so we can address any student allergies.

We appreciate your support of this policy as we want to work with you so that all students can participate in these special treat days. 
Thank you!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Did you know that State Child Protective Services has a policy regarding lack of adequate supervision for children?

State Policy states that children, ages 13 and above, can act as babysitters for other children. Children, ages 9 – 12, can occasionally be left unsupervised for brief periods of time. Children 8 years old and younger should never be left home alone. Of course, a specific child’s immaturity and behavior may necessitate adult supervision.

Calendar of Events

Chalker is a STEPS TO RESPECT school.
We believe bullying is unfair and one sided. It happens when someone keeps hurting, fighting, threatening or leaving someone out on purpose.
