2015 - 2016 School Supply Lists

Redwood Shores Elementary is using skoolfairy again as an option for purchasing classroom supplies for your child. Not only is this a simple and convenient way to purchase your school supplies, but skoolfairy donates 5% of the school supply bag purchases to our school.

Classroom Birthday Celebration Guidelines

1) No candy, soda or juice in class. This means no candy, soda or juice offered in class by teachers, by other students, or by parents.

2) Limiting sweet treats to once a month. We encourage educationally-appropriate celebrations of all kinds. If they include food, we would like these events to feature healthy food choices. Therefore, a maximum of only one item at one celebration a month may be in a desert/sugary category (fresh fruit is a great alternative!). Please remember that any foods containing trans fats can not be served or sold on any school campus per Ed Code.

3) If a child has a serious allergy to a food, that food should not be served in that student’s class that year. Children with potentially life-threatening allergies cannot be endangered by, or excluded from, shared classroom activities


Instead of bringing food to celebrate your child’s special day, please consider non-food items such as a personalized gift to the classroom or school in the student’s name. Please see the letter from Principal Bob Sherman and a flyer with additional information.


  • All volunteers and guests must sign-in at the office and pick-up a volunteer badge.
  • If your child has forgotten their homework, snack or lunch, please bring these items to the office. Please do not go directly to the classroom.
