Celebrating Birthdays Robb Pottle Style

Remember celebrating your birthday when you turned eight?  Robb Pottle, our 2nd grade teacher, makes sure every student in his classroom          celebrates their birthday.

        We've had a rash of celebrations recently due to "half" birthdays (those summer birthdays!)  He, with the help of Nettie & Friends, purchases a small gift AND decorates a cake with a theme of the student's choice.  This activity is one of the many ways he builds community in his classroom.  The celebrated birthday student is responsible for serving the cake and practicing their manners. Here are some of his creations (and he's never taken a cake decorating class!)  Thank you for making sure each of our 2nd grade students celebrates their birthday with their classmates.

Thanks Robb!  Thank you Nettie & Friends.
