Birthdays at WCES

WCES Student Birthday Celebrations


On your child's birthday (or near it if it’s on the weekend), your child's special day will be mentioned during morning announcements.  They will come down after announcements to receive their birthday ribbon and pencil. Summer birthdays are celebrated in May. 


When bringing birthday treats, we ask that you follow these procedures:


Birthday Treats for Students:

Parents are welcome to bring a treat for their child's class at lunch the week of their birthday. 


Check with your child's teacher if there are any food allergies:

Treats need to be provided for the whole class, which includes those students with allergies. Please consider those with allergies when making your purchase.


Cupcakes, cookies, or ice cream must be purchased and cannot be homemade:  

District policy states that only store-bought items may be provided to students.  Food that is prepared at a restaurant or at a grocery store is guaranteed to be from a health department certified kitchen.


In the cafeteria:

Please let a cafeteria monitor know you have treats, so that you can distribute the treats at the appropriate time. Only your child can sit with you at the parent table as normal. 


District policy states birthday treats for students such as flowers, balloons, stuffed animals, etc. cannot be delivered to school. β€‹
