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

Primary children enjoy celebrating with a delightful song and “walk around the sun.” Parents are asked to send pictures to school representing each year of the child’s life that become part of the ceremony. Elementary and Middle School children 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 let the directresses, guide or administrator know in advance if you plan to send a snack, and keep in mind that a nutritious, low sugar snack is most appropriate. (PLEASE: NO CAKES and NO PEANUT or NUT PRODUCTS)
