As per the Chesterfield School Handbook, food will no longer be permitted at birthday celebrations. Birthdays will be celebrated individually on your child’s special day within the classroom.You are invited to send in a "birthday book" for your child's special day. (This can be a new, surprise book or an old favorite.) We will share his or her special book together in honor of their birthday. Our class will then sign the book and we will keep it in our classroom library to enjoy throughout the year. All birthday books will be returned at the end of the school year.
While parents will not be participating in classroom birthday celebrations, please note that we do offer many opportunities for parent involvement this year including field trips, PTA scheduled events and Field Day.
Keep in mind that if you are planning a party at home, please only send invitations in to school if you will be inviting everyone (or just the same gender) in class. If you are sending only to a few classmates, please distribute them by mail. Thank you!
