Classroom Celebrations

Birthday Parties

Parents often want to send in treats to honor their child's birthday in the classroom. Parents should leave treats in the front office, or send with the child to class. Allowable treats are:

  • Cookies
  • Small individually wrapped treats (Hostess, Little Debbie, etc)
  • Cupcakes
  • Snacks such as pretzels, popcorn, etc.

Not allowed are:

  • Homemade treats
  • Cakes (nothing requiring cutting and serving)
  • Presents
  • Decorations such as balloons
  • Candles
  • Beverages other than water

The teacher will determine the appropriate time in the school day to share the treats and celebrate the Birthday. Children with birthdays are invited to the office via the school news. They should be sent to the office promptly where we will sing and give them a birthday pencil.

Parents may send in invitations for a home party ONLY if there is an invitation for everyone in the classroom. Parents are not allowed to celebrate with their child in the classroom or lunchroom. If a parent has a question about birthday celebrations please refer them to the Student Handbook in the Planner, or to administration.

Accelerated Reader Celebrations

These parties will be determined by the grade level as part of the Accelerated Reader Plan and submitted for approval to administration at the beginning of the school year. The student requirements must be communicated to parents by the grade level with a reminder sent on Parentlink before the end of the AR test close date.

Other Grade Level Incentive Parties

Incentive parties for homework, attendance or other reasons must be submitted in writing to administration for approval. If approved, please remember to email office staff at least the day before, so that they may answer specific questions about dress, etc.
