Guidelines for Birthday Celebrations at JES

Pink cupcake with sprinkles and cherry on top.

Parents are welcome on campus to celebrate their child’s birthday by bringing treats for the class to share.  You may drop items off at the office or personally deliver to the classroom at the time of the celebration.

Only refreshments consisting of cake, cupcakes, cookies or donuts and water should be served.  Please contact the office prior if you would like to make a suitable substitution of treats. 

Please keep in mind that this is not to be considered the student’s birthday party. Gifts, balloons, party favors/goody bags and additional guests should not be a part of the classroom birthday celebration.  In addition, siblings will not be able to leave their classrooms to attend. 

Celebration time is limited and each grade level has selected a time for these festivities.  Always contact your child’s teacher beforehand and arrive a few minutes prior to that time to check in at the office and receive a visitor’s badge.  Any items brought beside the treat and water will be held in the office and picked up as you leave campus.

Our goal is to keep the celebrations at school simple as to not distract from the classroom routine and instructional time. 

Thank you for your cooperation!
