Birthday and Allergy Policy
All families are allowed to send in cupcakes for a child’s birthday. No gifts, balloons, or trinkets are give  out by the birthday child. If there is a child in the classroom with food allergies, he/she will not be allowed to partake in  any of these special treats. Instead, his/her parents will be asked to supply an allergen-free substitute.                              
      Please let the classroom teacher know in advance what your plans are, so that proper arrangements can be  made and so that the teacher can let the parents of any student with allergies know to provide an  alternative.​ ​There​ ​will​ ​be​ ​NO​ ​exceptions​ ​to​ ​this​ ​policy. 
  Students celebrating birthdays will be recognized at morning prayer, spin the birthday wheel and be given  the​ ​birthday​ ​surprise​ ​they​ ​land​ ​on.​ ​A​ ​birthday​ ​bulletin​ ​board​ ​recognizes​ ​students​ ​each​ ​month. 
  “Goody” bags are not allowed at Catholic Academy under any circumstances. If “goody bags” are sent in  they will not be sent home again with the student. Classroom rewards that involve food items are not  allowed.
