Every time you have a birthday ...
... It means you've completed another journey around our sun! Or so we say In Room 117. We have a short ceremony to mark each child's birthday (or half birthday for children with summer birthdays). Parents are invited to bring a picture for each year of their child's life, and to tell a memory about their child at each age. At the end, we sing "Happy Birthday" and then go out for a special recess in honor of the birthday child. No sweets, please.
