STUDENT BIRTHDAYS/BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS
State nutritional and health regulations stipulate no outside food may be brought to school. This means cupcakes, cookies, candy, and other food items may not be brought in for children’s birthdays. We understand that children’s birthdays are very special. We have developed two birthday options that you may choose from to celebrate your child's birthday. These options were developed so your child's birthday can still be a special time at school!
If you would like to provide your child’s class with a special snack on the date of your child’s birthday, you may purchase a special ice cream snack for the class from our snack bar at a discounted rate of $20.00. (Ice cream meets state nutritional guidelines.). If you are interested, please come into the office to complete your order and pay for the special class ice cream snack at least one week in advance so that we can be sure to have enough ice cream in stock. Money will not be accepted in the classroom for this birthday snack offer, but through the office.
Package B consists of the special ice cream snack in Package A, as well as having a special Happy Birthday message scrolling on our Belforest road sign along County Road 64! The announcement will run the week of your child’s birthday, so it’s CRITICAL you purchase this package the week prior to your child’s birthday! This rate is $30.00 and also available through the office. Money will not be accepted in the classroom for this birthday snack offer, but through the office.
IF YOU PURCHASE THIS PACKAGE, PLEASE EMAIL JELLIS@BCBE.ORG TO NOTIFY MR. ELLIS WITH YOUR CHILD'S NAME AND THE DATE OF THEIR BIRTHDAYON THE SIGN.
Your child's class will receive their special birthday snack during their snack/recess time. Parents are allowed to enjoy this time with their child's classroom. Parents that are visiting for this brief time must adhere to BCBE health and safety protocol. Please communicate with your child's teacher to confirm when the class will have snack/recess on their birthday. Remember, no balloons, gifts, or other deliveries may be brought into school on your child's birthday. These package items make for a great surprise for your child as well!
Again, please communicate with the office one week prior to your child’s birthday so that we can prepare ice cream, and if necessary, our digital sign.
