Birthday Celebrations - (This was posted earlier but I have added a few details.)

We do love to celebrate birthdays in our room. It helps us continue to build a sense of community. You may send in treats with your child on his/her birthday. Things you should know when sending in treats:

  1. Cupcakes and cookies are fine if they are the small size ones. We don't need too much sugar and those regular size cupcakes are rarely finished by most students. Let's prevent waste and sugar overdoses. 
  2. Treats should should be purchased from a store and have the ingredient label attached.
  3. We do have 28 students in our crew.
  4. We do have 3 students with life-threatening peanut and tree nut allergies. They may not have treats that have nuts in them or that are processed in a factory with nuts. We also have a few other allergies/food restrictions: coconut, sesame seed, gluten and dairy.
  5. Fruit is a fine treat. The most popular birthday treat I have seen has been those little Clementine oranges. The students all loved them and were so proud because they could peel them by themselves.  
  6. We do our birthday celebrations right at the end of the school day but you may send the treats in the morning.
  7. Students with birthdays in the summer can choose a day close to the end of the school year to celebrate with the crew if they choose.
  8. Your child does not have to bring treats on their birthday. It is completely their choice.
  9. If your child does have allergies/food restrictions it is always great if you can send in some treats to keep in the classroom that are safe for them to eat at these times. Thanks.
