We LOVE celebrating birthday in Kindergarten. Please do not send any food items (cookies, cupcakes, etc.) with your child on his/her birthday. Due to allergies and other health and safety concerns our classroom is a “Food Free” learning environment. The only exceptions to this no food policy will be PTO school wide events. Feel free to send a non-food item for each student. (Example: pencils, erasers, stickers, etc.)
Also, many parents/guardians in other classrooms send in a present for the classroom. (Example: your child’s favorite book, game, movie, smelly markers, glitter glue, etc.) The kids would really enjoy the unwrapping and presentation of the present and it would help to replenish our classroom tools!
We welcome birthday readers in the classroom. You will receive a letter in the beginning of the year with a date to visit to celebrate with your child.I appreciate your help in this matter. I am looking forward to celebrating your Kindergarten friend!
