Birthdays are special days!
Due to students with potentially life threatening food allergies, the importance of promoting a healthy lifestyle, extensive clean up and other important factors, birthday treats (including goodie bags/gifts) of any kind can not be distributed. We know that birthdays are very exciting and special; therefore, we announce individual birthdays each day on morning announcements. Children will also be invited to receive a special birthday ribbon provided by the administrative staff.
Birthday and other party invitations may not be distributed at school. Additionally, passing out invitations at school is distracting to the learning environment. FCPS regulations prohibit schools from releasing private information regarding names, phone numbers or addresses of students. Our PTA publishes a Student Directory that is distributed to families for becoming members of the PTA. This is a great resource for contacting families/classmates.
I celebrate birthdays by giving students a special birthday hat and singing "Happy Birthday".
