Happy Birthday!!!

Birthdays are a fun and exciting time for our young students. In kindergarten we will recognize birthdays in the following manner:

As you may already know, there is a new district policy pertaining to birthday celebrations. We will no longer serve any food items to celebrate. Instead we will recognize each child’s special day (before or after if it falls on a day we’re not in session) by giving the child a royal crown and singing a rousing rendition of the birthday song!
In addition, if you choose to, you may purchase a new picture book or send a favorite one from your child’s home library to school that day for us to read. If you would like to donate the book to our class library, please let us know with a note or an email. We will put a nameplate inside the front cover indicating that it was given in honor of your child’s birthday. All donated books will be kept in a “birthday picks” basket for students to enjoy throughout the year.

Please Note: Invitations to private birthday parties may only be distributed in class if everyone in the class is invited. Otherwise you may refer to the class directory and send the invitations through the mail. Thank you for being sensitive to the children’s feelings
