Class Birthdays

Your child's special day is important in room 5! If it is your child's birthday, he or she will receive a birthday pencil and our class will sing to them. Students may bring in treats for the class. Cupcakes or cookies with juice boxes, and other small snacks are encouraged. Please DO NOT bring in any cake that needs cutting or juice that needs pouring as these snacks are very messy and time consuming. If your child's birthday is in the summer- no worries! In June, all of our summer birthdays will be celebrated. 

Box Tops

Our class collects Box Tops. If you have them, please send them in with your child to support our school.
