• Birthdays Are Special

    Contact me via email sorcem@kinnelon.org to read to us in honor of your child's birthday

    Happy Birthday to your child!  About one week in advance, please contact me so we can set up a convenient time to have a family member come and read to your class.  Email me at sorcem@kinnelon.org

    If you child's birthday is in the summer- May I suggest celebrating his/ her half birthday!

    Below please review the letter from our Principal:

    Dear Parents,

    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.  Please note that any food that is sent in will not be served.  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. 

    Sincerely yours,

    Ivonne Ciresi                                    Mark P. Mongon
