Birthday Parties at School By Ambreen Ali

Summary

School doesn't have to be all about paying attention and doing homework. Every now and then it's great to play games with the class or organize birthday parties. School birthday celebrations can be fun, academic, and still leave your child beaming with birthday bliss. However, many schools discourag

e in-school parties for any number of reasons, ranging from the disruption they cause to the daily routine to the fear of food allergies. Before you plan one, check with the teacher or school principal and find out the school's policy. If your child's school permits or encourages in-school celebrations, talk with the classroom teacher before you organize the party. Teachers are kind-hearted people who generally like to make kids happy with special celebrations. They also are human and usually appreciate a treat and something fun in an average day. Make it easy for them to plan your child's celebration into their schedule, by asking if you can bring something, and when. If the teacher asks you not to bring anything, or there is a school policy against bringing food or controlling what you bring (no nuts for example), follow the rules without complaining. If at all possible, volunteer to come serve the snack to the kids, or rope another parent into doing it. You can work this out with the teacher when you ask permission to bring the snack. Not all children want a party at school. Kindergartners, first- and second-graders are usually excited by the idea. Older children may not be. Discuss the idea with your youngster before making any plans. Assume the teacher has no supplies and has no one to help, plan for less mess. Pack accordingly, nothing with drippy sauces and Individual drinks rather than something that has to be poured and can spill. Don't bring a cake. Bring cupcakes. Include a few extra napkins, plates, cups, etc. Don't forget to count the teacher when counting out servings. If your child's school restricts food for parties, think of other ways to celebrate. They might allow balloons or streamers. Party hats add an air of celebration. Bring a crown or extra-special hat for the birthday celebrant. Plan an easy game or sing along. Arrive with several library books and let the kids decide which to read. Gather them in a circle and let the birthday boy or girl sit in the centre. While there is no need for party favours at in-school birthday parties, some parents like to give them. Bring goody bags for all kids. Pack up goody bags with simple, age-appropriate toys, card games, or school supplies like pencils, erasers, sharpeners, small notebooks. Kids love fun school supplies. They also love stickers and you can buy four- or six-packs and divide them among the classmates. Keep these favours inexpensive and to a minimum. There are so many cute ideas you can do for your child's school birthday party but many parents still believe in keeping things simple. The kids don't really care what you prepare as long as they get to eat their all-time favourite meals, sing Happy Birthday, and blow out the candles. Don't forget to ask the classroom teacher earlier about how long you should stay for the party. Do not stay a minute longer. Be sure to allow time to clean and pack up. Encourage the kids to help tidy up and make sure you leave the classroom as you found it. Call or email the teacher that evening or the next day, or write her a note and thank her for letting you celebrate your child's special day with the class. Planning a birthday party for your kid at school is less expensive and you can avoid having to host a large, expensive party at home. Dance PPA Cover / Sports PPA Cover / PPA Cover
