4th Grade Birthday Policy


    We love birthdays in 4th grade!  In an effort to acknowledge each student on his/her special day, as well as maintain instructional time and nutritional guidelines, we have decided on the following grade level birthday policy: 

    ·        Each student will be acknowledged on his or her birthday in class in the form of a song, card, or special treat from the teacher. 

    ·        We ask parents to refrain from sending birthday treats to school for your child’s class. 

    ·        Instead, we will have a whole class celebration with healthy snacks and games at the end of the year.

    We think this is a great way to balance birthdays and instructional time.   In addition, this policy helps us manage the nutritional needs of individuals with allergies and maintain better nutrition for all students. 


    Thank you for your support!
