Reminder From the Elementary Student Handbook about birthdays and invitations...

We recognize the importance of celebrating student birthdays, and we love to honor our birthday children by announcing their names on the morning announcements. Our teachers take great pride in making their students feel important on their birthdays as well. If you would like to send in something special to mark your child’s birthday, please send an item for the classroom such as a favorite book (signed and dated by your child) or other trinkets such as pencils, erasers, stickers, and the like. Due to the growing number of allergies and health concerns for our students, we ask that you please do not send in food treats for your child’s birthday. 


Invitations for parties or other private events may not be distributed in classrooms, on school buses, or on school property. Your cooperation in this matter is critical to create a supportive atmosphere for each child and not one in which the feelings of any child are placed in jeopardy.
