Celebrating a birthday at school is always a treat. Because of food allergies, I am asking that you not send in food for birthdays. Instead, you do have the option to have your child bring in a book for our class. You could donate this book to the classroom library with a note in the front along the lines of “Donated in honor of Jim’s 11th birthday on March 11, 2017!”. Children with summer birthdays will be able to bring in a book (if they wish) during the months of April, May and June for their “school-birthdays.” Please contact me if you are thinking about doing this. In addition, each student get the opportunity to select a game that the class plays during their birthday.
