Making a Child's Birthday Special

Recognizing a child's birthday is a very special part of growing up and this can be done in a thoughtful way in school, without the need for sugary treats to be sent in from home.  We will help our students celebrate their special day in a variety of ways, which may include:
  • Giving that child a special responsibility or classroom job that day.
  • Having birthday stickers or crowns for the birthday child, as is age appropriate.
  • Recognizing the child with thoughtful messages from peers and teachers during Morning Meeting and/or illustrating and writing special messages, etc.
  • Gifting the birthday child with a choice of a "Birthday Book" from the office (handled in a safe manner).
  • Any other special ideas to help the child feel extra-special on that day that teachers may devise.
Please note that:
  • Edible treats cannot be sent in from home.
  • We don't expect families to send in any items, but some may choose to send in individual bubble containers, stickers, pencils or other inedible items that children can enjoy individually, after being sanitized.
  • Our school cannot send home birthday invitations to families for events that may be planned outside of school.

Parents/Guardians, thank you so much for trusting our Daisy Educators to make every day special for our children!
