As a school, we promote active and engaged play.  At recess and during “down time,” we believe that children learn most and best by playing together:  socializing, imagining, cooperating, laughing, and talking.  Toys brought from home can impede this valuable time and play.  In addition, these items can get lost, damaged, or cause issues among peers.  Please do not allow your child to bring toys from home unless they are specifically requested by the teacher.
