PTA rep called me and told me nobody was doing anything and she really needed me , they were on the verge of cancelling the party.  I agreed to do  (for 2 children in same class) cup cakes, brownies, rice krispie treats, candy , chips and pencils.  DD will buy the pencils candy and chips I will make the rest.  Its a lot lol.

Seeing how the parties the kids are allowed to have suck, nope.

Granted, M is in 8th grade.

Back when she was in elementary, as well as the older two, we had great fun prepping for the parties they had in class.  I miss those days.

maybe parents worry about allergy kids and just don't want to bring anything.


I know parents call me to make sure something is acceptable for my son to eat.

No. The parents always sign up for things well in advance.

Not really. But we are only in preschool. And the sign up sheets fill up fast.

 My kids will be going to private school so I'm going to say it won't be a challenge. lol I do know that for daycare events I'm usually the only one who participates.

From the plethora of crap my kid is given at school, no, it's not an issue here.  Apparently, bribery with sweets is the preferred method here.

In DD's class, the problem is that the teacher sucks at sending home notices on time to request food. When she "forgets" to send their folder home for days and then the day before a party sends a request, its her fault when no food comes the very next day.

No, I will not help with 16 hours notice. I plan to sleep for 8 of those hours.

Our school doesn't allow class parties.
