Birthdays are celebrated on the day of the child’s birthday during afternoon recess (2:00 PM to 2:15 PM) on M, T, Th, F. Please keep in mind that we have students with peanut allergies and cannot eat gluten. Please bring a similar treat for them as well if your main treat has these ingredients. We want all the students to feel included.
Wednesday Birthdays: Because we do not have an afternoon recess, please bring birthday treats on M, T, Th, or F. Summer Birthdays: Those who have birthdays in June and July can pick a day in the first week of June to celebrate. Birthdays in August, bring a treat during the 2nd or 3rd week of September.
Please notify the teacher in advance what date you would like to celebrate if you plan to bring a birthday treat
so that there are no conflicts. Celebrating birthdays is an option and it is not required.
