    Students celebrating their birthdays this fall at the Chandler School in Duxbury can expect their classmates to sing "Happy Birthday," but cupcakes are out of the question.

    Concerned that the children are eating too much junk food, the Chandler School Council and the Parent Teacher Association are forbidding parents from bringing sweets to their child's classroom birthday party.

    "We love birthdays, but we decided to shift the focus onto the child and not the food," said principal Deborah Zetterberg, who is also cochairwoman of the school council. "What we proposed was to have a birthday package, as we're calling it."

    The package includes a special birthday chair cover that will be placed on the back of the student's chair, Zetterberg said. The birthday boy or girl can also wear a sash. They get a special pencil and a sticker with the school's mascot, the Happy Dragon, she said. Preschool and kindergarten students also get to wear a birthday crown, she said.
