A birthday is a very special time for your child. We welcome classroom celebrations. Please discuss your plans with your child’s teacher at least one week before the planned celebration.
- Please be considerate of children’s religious observances, including Kashrut, and plan parties at times other than Shabbat and/or with Kosher food.
- As part of the Jewish environment we are encouraging for our children at the Gan, we are asking you to please send in only Kosher snacks for your child’s birthday. These may not be home baked. Some suggestions include Entenmanns’s cakes, Drakes cakes, Munchkins from the Highland Park Dunkin Donuts or from a Kosher bakery.
The teacher reserves the right to return food items if not properly marked.
- Goody bags, balloons, outside entertainment, and pizza are generally not a part of our in school celebrations. Our teachers plan something extra special for each celebration.
- We have a “Birthday Books” program in honor of your child’s special day. You may choose a new book for your child’s classroom. A special bookplate with your child’s name is placed in the book and parents may come in to read the book as part of the Birthday celebration.
