Birthday Celebrations Policy

The policy below was crafted with input from parents and staff and we ask that all families respectfully follow these guidelines when celebrating your child’s birthday at school:

Thanks in advance for your cooperation and assistance.

Birthday celebrations at school are a great opportunity to share this special day with your classmates. We would like to join with your family in celebrating your child’s birthday with his/her classmates by following these guidelines:

If you wish to have birthday recognition at school please contact your child’s teacher one week in advance to plan a celebration that can include any of the following:

1) Bring a healthy snack such as:

Fresh fruit, dried fruits, or veggies

100% frozen juice or fruit bars

Low-fat bakery items

Pretzels, popcorn (air) or Goldfish crackers

Bottled Water or 100% fruit juice

2) Bring books or crayons, fun pencils, notepads, rulers, or stickers for every child.

3) Donate a book to the school library in your child’s name

4) Invite an interesting guest to speak to your child’s classroom

At this time, we are eliminating the food celebrations that include cupcakes, donuts and other junk foods in order to encourage healthy habits.

Please discuss with the teacher a week in advance the particulars of the celebration so that an appropriate time and place can be selected for the recognition.
