Birthdays

Birthdays

Birthday celebrations for your child are not allowed as they detract from the learning environment. Sugary treats do not follow the guidelines issued in our district’s Wellness Policy. Students feel subtle peer pressure when other students’ parents bring a treat.  Deliveries or use of  balloons, flowers, cupcakes etc. is prohibited. Recognition of a birthday is better done by having your child hand out a special decorated pencil or eraser.  Fancy pencil sets are available in the school office (.25 a piece).  Please contact the teacher in regards to passing out any birthday party invitation. This can be a sensitive issue.
