Celebrating Birthdays

Unlike most adults, children really enjoy celebrating their birthday! Our Barnsdale children are so fortunate that most of them enjoy home parties and some special ways to celebrate out of school. At school, we like to recognize these milestones too!

Birthdays will be celebrated through a building announcement, crown or sticker, a birthday song, and a gift from the Library Birthday shelf. Students may NOT bring treats (edible or non-edible) to share with other students. Party invitations should not be distributed at school unless all of the students in the classroom have been invited to the party (or all of the girls or all the boys). Names should not be placed on the invitations (for ease of distribution). Please refer to the handout in the summer mailing or call the classroom teacher for details.
