Birthdays I celebrate birthdays in my classroom by giving a hat to wear and we sing Happy Birthday. We will no longer have birthday treats in our classroom per administration. Birthday treats may be sent in in the morning with your child. They may NOT be homemade. It needs to be something simple as lunch time is limited. Cookies or small cupcakes are recommended. They will be served to the students in the cafeteria at lunch time. Please do no send in birthday party invitations for your child to pass out unless EVERYONE in the class is invited as this may cause hurt feelings.
