Birthdays and Invitations

 

 BIRTHDAYS: We would like to recognize each child’s birthday. If you want to send a treat, individual items work best. In accordance with Wagon Wheel’s healthy eating policy, we encourage treats with limited or no sugar. (Stickers, bookmarks, erasers, pencils etc. are a wise choice) Drinks are best if they are individually packaged. Because of food allergies, please refrain from treats with nut products. An alternative to individual birthday treats might be presenting an educational activity in honor of your child’s birthday for the classroom. (a book, game, manipulatives, etc.) If your child has a summer birthday, we can celebrate it during the year. Let us know the day you want us to celebrate it. We will be giving the birthday child a crown and singing the birthday song to them.
 
 INVITATIONS: The teachers are not allowed to give out birthday party invitations at school or other student addresses/phone numbers. We hope to get you a class list soon with the information that you have given us permission to provide to the rest of our class.
