Advisory Birthday Treats

They say it's your birthday? Well Happy Birthday to you! Here are a couple of guidelines to follow when sending in treats to celebrate the occasion for your student.

  • Email and alert your student's advisor a week ahead of time, asking them what day and time would work to bring in birthday treats
  • Bring enough treats for just your student's advisory
  • Treats will be distributed by the advisor during Afternoon Advisory
  • Keep birthday treats small and simple: mini cupcakes, Popsicles, mini Jamba Juice cups, Baskin Robbins mini birthday cones, etc.
