Howe Montessori Birthday Guidelines

Hello Parents!

We would like to stay consistent with birthday celebrations across grade levels. Below are some ideas and recommendations from the teachers that will allow us to celebrate .

*Make sure to notify teachers 24 hours before your plans.

*Store-bought food items with labels so we can identify any allergies.

*Bring individual treats like cupcakes or cookies for the class. 

*Please send in napkins or plates to serve the item on. 

*Make sure to pay attention to any allergies in your child’s classroom (some rooms are peanut/tree nut free). 

*Your child’s class will sing happy birthday to them if they would like. 

* Your teacher can send a picture of your child celebrating with their friends. 

Not allowed anymore: cakes, candles, pizza, juice, balloons, goody bags.

Thank you for understanding. We want to celebrate your child, but also do not want to distract the classroom environment from learning that day.
