    Sadly, it may be that the day of homemade goodies for school parties may be a thing of the past. My granddaughter’s elementary school (in the Deer Valley School District) doesn’t allow homemade anything. Everything must be commercially-made, in its original wrapper from the store, with ingredients included.
