Handbook: Birthday Celebration


Children will have “Happy Birthday” sung to them on their birthday at Circle Time. Parents are welcome to supply a classroom finger food snack on their child’s birthday. These snacks should be dropped off before 10:00 am or as soon as the child arrives in school.

To maximize teaching and learning time, we recommend a “no gift” celebration with NO:

… elaborate party

… written invitations

… games

… mascot

… costume – the celebrator will come to school in his /her uniform

… chocolate drinks/snacks

… blowing of cake inside the classroom

… parents and family members inside the classroom

Suggested foods:

  • Fruit juices
  • Milk
  • Pizza
  • Muffins
  • Cupcakes
  • Pre-sliced cakes in individual containers
  • Bite-size sandwiches

If parents will send spaghetti/rice and chicken and loot bags (may contain chocolate candies, toys etc.) these foods and giveaways will be distributed at dismissal time.

Please notify the school one week before the birthday celebration.
