Dear Parents,Here are our birthday procedures for our second grade class.
Each student will receive a birthday hat, pencil, song, and birthday card signed by each of his/her classmates on their birthday, unless your family has religious reasons to not acknowledge birthdays. In this case, please communicate that to me. If you would like your child’s birthday recognized in class and it falls on a weekend or nonschool day, send me a brief note or email letting me know your prefered day to celebrate on. All summer birthdays will celebrate sometime in June. Since food items are not alllowed in class, parents wishing to send in a nonfood item treat for everyone may do so. Birthday invitations for your own private parties can only be distributed in class if EVERYONE is invited. Otherwise, you can use the classroom friend finder info to get invitations only to a few friends.
To help keep our classroom stocked with much needed hand wipes and tissues, I encourage each student to bring in 1 box of tissues and 1container of wipes during their birthday week. Students with summer birthdays can bring them in at anytime.
