Ds has been coming home from school with his snack uneaten. When asked, he told me he wasn't hungry at snack time. This morning he asked me if I would send some money so he could have some juice with snack. I told him I payed for his juice already. He then lets me know that he used that money for icecream at snack. This flew all over me. Ds is in first grade and I send an envelope in his folder with his name, his teacher's name, the dollar amount and what it is for.
I don't understand why she would allow him to spend the money on something else. It also pisses me off that icecream is offered EVERY day during snack. I talked to ds and let him know that I expect him to get what I pay for. I also sent a note to his teacher. Am I over reacting? Would you be pissed?

I've never heard of a school offering snacks at all (besides preschool, which the parents would take weekly turns providing for all students in the class). In our school they eat a 'working snack', which I guess means they are allowed to eat at their desk while they are working on school work. At lunch, if they finish their food they are allowed to buy dessert which they have termed 'seconds' (imagine my confusion). Instead of sending money to their school we have student accounts where they use their student ID number to buy things. You can refill the amount of their account and you can also prohibit them from buying junk foods.
