How are birthdays and birthday parties handled in the Kindergarten and Lower School?

Students are welcome to bring a special treat to school on their birthday or half-birthday to share with their class. We ask parents that such treats be entirely nut-free. Whenever possible please bring enough of the same treat for everyone in the class; it can get tricky if there are 10 vanilla cupcakes and 10 chocolate but 12 children want vanilla.

When inviting students to birthday parties we ask parents to be mindful of feelings: make sure to distribute all invitations outside of school and please keep birthday discussions and plans outside of school as well unless the whole class is invited.
