smile We encourage students to celebrate their birthdays with their class. Students use photos of themselves to create a timeline to illustrate their lives. They share that with the class during their birthday circle. In addition, everyone in the birthday circle gives a birthday wish or compliment to the celebrant.

Then, holding a globe, the birthday child travels around a sun that ‘s been designed in the center of the room. In the center of the sun is a lit candle. The student travels one revolution around the sun for every year of his or her life.

We look forward to celebrating lots of birthdays with our students.

Our language immersion program teaches children English, Spanish and French. Of course our students know how to say, "Happy birthday! Joyeux anniversaire! and

¡Feliz cumpleaños!"
