We know that birthdays start at school as early as day one! And we love helping students celebrate a little at school.
However, in light of the increasing national concern over sugar in the classroom, the almost daily occurrence of student birthdays, and the large number of student allergies and health concerns, American Academy does not allow students to bring food treats into school for birthdays. Instead, students wishing to share something with the classroom may bring in non-food trinkets, favors, or small toys to be distributed at the discretion of the teacher. Students with to share must take care to bring enough to share with all students in the classroom.
Invitations to birthday parties must be extended at a time outside school hours. Thank you for keeping our classrooms safe and (mostly) sugar-free!
NOTE: Please hand out invitations to birthday parties at a time outside school hours.
