We love to help celebrate children’s birthdays at school. We recognize birthdays on Morning Announcements. Students receive a birthday ribbon as well. Birthday invitations are NOT to be given out in class unless there is an invitation for everyone. We are not able to provide addresses or phone numbers for children in class due to confidentiality. Parents may contact their child’s teacher about sending in a birthday treat for the celebration of their child’s birthday in the classroom. Because of the prevalence of food allergies, we encourage parents to send in non-food items such as stickers, pencils or books (no toys, please). Birthday parties are not held in school. Please note that Groton Public Schools Food Services offers an “In Class Celebration” menu of choices. Please go to the GPS web site and go to Department Food Services for more information.
