It’s finally arrived! Thursday this week is the day we celebrate everyone’s birthday – because it’s not anyone’s birthday (shades of Alice in Wonderland)
Here’s the notice that went home today:
Quite some time ago the class voted to celebrate everyone’s birthday – on a day when no one is having a birthday! We’re calling it the “Un-Birthday”. We’re doing this so that everyone in class, even those whose birthdays fall in the summer or on a school holiday, can celebrate their birthday in class. The class chose this Thursday, November 23rd as the date for our “Un-Birthday”!
On that day, students are preparing to bring to class deserts that are birthday-like – cupcakes, muffins, cookies, cakes, brownies, etc. Drinks, veggie, fruit and/or cheese plates are welcome too! There is no need for everyone to bring enough for all of the children. A dozen or so items it just fine – and this is a voluntary activity. It’s up to individual students if they wish to participate.
It’s going to be fun –
and a “Happy Un-birthday to You, too! ”
