Birthdays are very special occasions that we know our students look forward to, and we want each child to enjoy his or her special day.
At the same time, we want to uphold the healthy, lifelong habits that we help our students to develop each and every day. It is with that in mind that we ask you not to send edible birthday treats or goody bags with food of any kind.
Your child’s teacher can talk with you about other ways that your child can celebrate his or her birthday that will make it fun and memorable for him or her (having a relative come in to read a story, providing a game or other special activity for your child to participate in with classmates, or other experiences of that type).
We appreciate your partnership and cooperation as we support healthy habits for all of our students.
