We love to celebrate this special event! If you choose to send in a treat to share, please make sure the snack can be served by your child independently or with only a little assistance. Children that have birthdays during summer is celebrated the last week of school. We do not want to have any hurt feelings in our school, so we are only allowing birthday invitations to be passed out if all students, or all students of the same gender in the class have been invited. If you have received an invitation, please remember to reply to the sender.
Our School Nurse is available every other Tuesday from 8:30-11:30. She can also be contacted through phone or email.
Each family has its own special customs and traditions. In school, we enjoy learning about rich diversity and celebrating as a class family! Please share your family traditions with us! School holiday dates can be found in our School Calendar. SFO will keep open during most holidays for all PYP children interested.
All students must have a pair of shoes that is only worn inside. They should stay at school at all times.
Please help your child label his/her lunch box, classroom equipment, coat, hat, mittens/gloves and indoor and outdoor shoes, with his/her name. Many children have similar items and it really helps if things get lost!
