Birthdays at Birchwood
Children are recognized on their special day with an announcement and they may choose an item from the Birchwood Treasure Box. Birchwood does not allow birthday treats, party bags, or anything brought from home to be distributed to students, with no exceptions.
If you would still like to share something with your child’s class, you may choose a book to donate to the class library ($20 dollars or less). Classroom teachers will put a label with your child’s name and birthday inside the book.
It is our desire to make your child’s day special while maintaining a low-key atmosphere that does not distract from academics.
