Birthday celebrations in Kitah Aleph

This year for the first time, some families asked if they could join in our class time celebration.  I have not encouraged this in the past because some parents can come and others can’t.  But I can see that it really does add to our joy to have visitors, so I am going to send this open invitation to the families of the students who have yet to have a birthday celebration in class to join us if possible.  If it goes well then next year I will offer this opportunity from the beginning of the year.  Let me know what you think about the idea.  Here are some happy pictures of the kids who have celebrated so far this year.
