In regard to student birthdays, we would appreciate your understanding and support of our position. We cannot allow students to bring cookies, candy, etc. and distribute in their classroom. There are several reasons why this cannot be allowed. It becomes a competitive situation, which can get out of hand as well as being a disruption to class instruction. The same rule applies to invitation distribution at school or on school property. Please do not ask the teachers to make exceptions to this rule. Many children can have hurt feelings or the teacher may be out and a substitute fail to pass out the invitations, and we certainly respect your right to invite whom you choose. Please send all invitations through the mail, social media, or by telephone. Our teachers do recognize students’ birthdays, as we certainly understand how important this day is to your child.
Next week, third grade will be sending a note/permission form home with your child. On this form, you have the option to include or not include your address on a student information list. Please look for this note in your child’s take home folder next week and send back to school the next day so that we may compile this list as quickly as possible.
