Over the Rainbow Bridge
At Stone Soup we take special time to celebrate children individually. We hold a special circle in honor of your child’s birthday. We do not have a party (that will be for families to do). We call it “your birthday celebration” or “your school birthday”. We would like parents to attend and participate for about half an hour. We will coordinate the date together, preferably the closest to the child’s actual birth date. Parents bring your child’s favorite fruit and come prepared to say a little about your child’s growing years.
Children born during July or August will be celebrated in June unless the parents have a more convenient date before school is over, or if the child will be attending the summer session.
We will put all the birthdays on the calendar, at the first parent meeting. Each teacher has her own particular way of celebrating. This year, we are asking that each attending child bring a flower for the birthday child so they may take a lovely bouquet of flowers home filled with loving thoughts from their friends, so please make sure to attend the first parent meeting and note the birth dates on your calendar.
