How do we celebrate birthdays?

Student birthdays are celebrated each morning by announcing the child’s name as part of the morning announcements and then the student comes to the office for a special birthday pencil. In alignment with the HCPSS Health & Wellness and Food Policies, we ask that you do not send in a food item if you choose to celebrate your child’s birthday in the classroom. In lieu of a food item, you may send in non-edibile items such as stickers, pencils, erasers, or, your child may wish to donate a book to the classroom library or media center in honor of his/her special day. No balloons or food of any kind may be brought into the classroom.
