Classroom Parties and Celebrations

Birthday PartiesAt Wilmot Elementary, birthdays are celebrated and holidays recognized in a healthy, fun environment. For birthdays, students are crowned for the day with a special “happy birthday” recognition during announcements and a photo added to the “birthday stars board.” Families can bring in non-food alternatives to celebrate their child, following JeffCo’s district policy. Ideas (many from students) on fun ways to celebrate birthdays can be found here.
Room moms help teachers plan two memorable parties with snacks and games that are environmentally friendly and healthy:

On Halloween, families are encouraged to join the parade of costumes before afternoon classroom parties. View the Halloween party guidelines here.
On Valentine's Day, families are invited to come to the classroom as students exchange Valentine's before afternoon parties.
