JP: STUDENT GIFTS AND SOLICITATIONS

FILE: JP
Because of the embarrassment that might result among children, students will be discouraged from giving gifts to classroom teachers and other school personnel. For the same reason, there will be no formal exchange of gifts between students in the classroom. However, when gifts are given, personal expressions like thank you notes allow every student to participate regardless of financial resources.
 
All gift giving must comply with state law and adhere to limitations on the value of gifts given to staff.
 
Any organization desiring to distribute flyers or other materials to students in connection with fund drives may do so only with the approval of the Principal.
