Birthdays at JRES


Birthdays are a special time!

  • In order to eliminate hurt feelings, students are not allowed to bring party invitations unless the student plans to distribute to entire class or all members of same gender (for example: all boys or all girls). 
  • Office staff and teachers will not be permitted to give out other student’s addresses and phone numbers.
  • The PTO will create a PTO directory for this purpose at the beginning of the school year and parents will be asked to sign a waiver if they choose to participate.


Birthday celebrations at school:

  • School celebrations are limited to store bought cupcakes or cookies.  Please do not send cakes or items that can’t be shared easily with all students. 
  • This special snack will take place during recess or a specified time by the teacher. 
  • Please do not arrange for characters to visit the school. We also will not allow balloons, flowers, stuffed animals, goodie bags, or other items that can be a distraction to the school day. We ask that you save these for special home celebrations!
