Birthdays at Maria Montessori School are special, unique and lots of fun.

Primary children enjoy celebrating with a delightful song and “walk around the sun.” Parents are asked to send pictures representing each year of the child’s life. Elementary and middle school students make a timeline of their lives which is shared with their classmates.

It is a tradition for the children to present the school with a book for the library in celebration of their birthday.

Parents may send a special snack to school for birthday celebrations. Please inform the directress, guide or administrator in advance if you plan to send a snack. Keep in mind that a nutritious, low sugar snack is most appropriate. Please, no cakes and no peanut or nut products.
