Birthday Celebrations

Please be aware that we have several students on campus with food allergies, so non-food items for birthday treats are always preferred. We respectfully request that families provide teachers at least 48-hours notice if you are planning to bring birthday treats to the school for your child. All birthday celebrations will occur at the end of the school day.

Thanks for you support as we strive to keep kids happy and safe while celebrating birthdays at school!
