    School-wide Birthday Treat Policy

    Birthdays are so important to every child and kids like to celebrate with their classmates. With respect to overall student wellness, as well as, students with food allergies, diabetes, and other dietary restrictions; we are no longer accepting food items (homemade or store bought) as a birthday celebration treat at school. Instead, we will celebrate student birthdays in these ways: 1. Students may choose to donate a new or gently used book to the teacher's classroom library. A special birthday sticker will be placed inside the front cover to acknowledge the student's birthday and to celebrate their gift with current and future students. 2. Each student will receive a birthday token from the office or classroom teacher. 3. A "Birthday Bulletin Board" will be maintained each month to display the names of students. 4. The School Nurse will announce student names along with Morning Announcements. Students are NOT permitted to bring small goodie bags filled with party favors (bouncy balls, matchbox cars, erasers, tops, magnifying glasses, notepads, balloons, whistles, bubbles, etc.) These become unnecessary distractions to learning and can turn into safety issues
