Birthdays

If you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday in school, you are welcome to contact your child’s teachers to bring in a special birthday treat, such as cupcakes, for the class. 

If you choose to invite all members of your child’s class to your child’s birthday party, you are welcome to distribute invitations at school. However, if you cannot invite the entire class, we ask that birthday invitations not be distributed at school in order to be sensitive to the feelings of the students. When planning celebrations, please take extra care to avoid situations that will cause misunderstandings (for example, inviting all of the girls in a class except for one or two). 

If you wish to make special accommodations to pick up students for birthday parties after school, contact the director of Lower School or the director of pre-K at least three days in advance to discuss your plans.
