No food of any kind (cake, ice cream, snacks etc) is to be shared in the classroom to celebrate. As an alternative, your child might also wish to bring in small prizes. Please feel free to send in pencils, erasers, stickers, or bookmarks. Ensure that there are enough for all in the class.

Some optional birthday ideas for your Devon Dragon, these are grade specific. Your child's teacher will send a note home about birthdays but if not feel free to check out the list below:
Birthday Recess: The class will have a 5 minute indoor recess in your child's honor!
