Snacks should be individually packaged, enough for 22 students each day of the week and accompanied by a list of allergens (on the package).


Birthdays
LCCS will no longer be celebrating birthdays with "cupcakes." If you would like to celebrate your child's birthday, a family member is welcome to come in and read a story to our class. Please email me if you would like to set something up!
