A child’s birthday is a time of celebration and we welcome the opportunity to celebrate this occasion with your child in the classroom. The celebration in the class revolves around the child’s life and special events that have occurred. Parents are encouraged to create a timeline of the child’s life using one picture for each year of the child’s life and anecdotes from family members. The child is welcome to bring in a simple nutritious special snack such as fruit, vegetables or dessert to share with the class. This occasion is a celebration and is not meant to be a birthday party, therefore we ask that no presents, gift bags, etc., be distributed at this time. All birthday celebrations must be pre-arranged with the classroom teacher.
Some of the special events we celebrate include:
International Week and International Day
Show Me Night
End of Year Ceremony: Brilliant Star holds a beautiful end of year ceremony to celebrate a year of learning and to mark the graduation of each child who has transitioned from one classroom to another.
