Birthdays are a special time and we celebrate birthdays by presenting children with a book with his or her name inside the cover to go in the school library. If your child has a summer birthday, we will celebrate his/her half birthday.
Parents are welcome to provide a special nut-free snack on the day that we celebrate your child’s birthday. Mini-cupcakes or a small food item work well because they are a not-too-big treat. If you would like to bring simple treats for the class to celebrate your child’s birthday, please let your child’s teacher know in advance. Cupcakes, cookies, muffins, and doughnut holes are typical birthday treats that are easy for the children to distribute. Please do not bring cakes that need to be cut up, as they are challenging in the classroom. We want to honor each child with the same type of birthday celebration, so we ask that you not send party bags, balloons, drinks, etc. to school. If you are planning a party, please mail or distribute the invitations outside of school since they can be easily lost or cause hurt feelings when they are delivered at school.
