Birthday Celebrations




During our Monday Morning assemblies, we will announce the names of our weekly birthdays. Students who have a birthday during our break will have their birthdays announce prior to our break/vacation.  Students will be able to select a book in celebration of his/her special day. If you would like your child excluded from this recognition, please inform the office prior to the birthday. 




With a minimum of 24-hour notice and teacher’s approval, you may bring store purchased food or goodie bags to share with your child’s classmates during the last 15 minutes of the school day.  PLEASE DO NOT SHOW UP THE DAY OF YOUR CHILD’S BIRTHDAY UNANNOUNCED WITHOUT HAVING MADE PRIOR ARRANGEMENTS WITH THE TEACHER WITH THE EXPECTATION TO CELEBRATE OR VISIT THE CLASSROOM. While your child’s birthday is very important, so is the instructional minutes for all the students. No home-made food can be distributed.  If making goodie bags, do not include candies, chips or anything with peanut.  Healthy snacks and school supplies are recommended. 


In summary

  • 24 hours noticed and pre-approval required
  • store purchased goods only (beware of student allergies)
  • no celebration before school, during recess, lunch, or instructional day
  • limited to 2:14 (15 minutes before dismissal) in the lunch pavilion
  • consider healthy snacks or school supplies for goodie bags instead of cupcakes
