Birthdays: Parents are welcome to bring in a nonfood item for your child’s birthday or half birthday either at recess, before lunch or before end of the school day. Nonedible items are also rewarding- or perhaps donate a book to the class library in your child’s name. Please aim to follow the district’s wellness policy. I will honor your child’s birthday or half birthday (if in the summer) with a pencil and certificate, which they can use any time during the year. Book Orders: Ordering books helps earn points! With those points, I can “buy” books, teaching resources and other items for our class auction.
