Birthday Treat Policy

Due to the high number of students with severe food allergies and special dietary concerns and Rock Ridge’s emphasis on health and wellness, birthday celebrations may no longer include food. Please save birthday cakes and cupcakes for your home celebration.


We realize many parents like to do something special in school for their child’s birthday. We’d 

like to suggest you consider donating a small gift to your child’s classroom. This donation from your child might be an educational game, a book for the class library, a ball to be used on the playground, or a pencil for each student in the room. Classroom teachers also have a variety of activities for birthday celebrations designed to make birthday children feel special.

Another option is to donate a book to the library. Rock Ridge will place inside the book a recognition note of who donated the book and the date. Check with Laura Keller for more details.

All birthdays will be announced daily. In addition, children will receive a birthday gift from the office.

We appreciate your cooperation!
