Birthday celebrations
Birthday Celebrations

  • From the parent handbook:

    - “In order to promote healthy choices and support a culture of wellness in our schools, along with our concern for food allergies and childhood obesity, birthday treats in the form of food items will not be allowed. If a food item is sent, it will not be served and will be sent home. Suggested birthday “treats” can include things like: a pencil, a book for the classroom, or stickers.”

  • PARTY INVITES: (Also in handbook) – “Passing out party invitations in the classroom or at school will ONLY be allowed if ALL students are invited. If some children are to be excluded from the party, the parents will be responsible for distributing the invitations OUTSIDE of the school.”

    • Please do NOT ask me for address of students. For privacy reasons, I am not allowed to give them to you. A great resource for addresses is our school directory.
