Kindergarten Celebrates Summer Birthdays

The kindergarten had a “birthday parade,” marching around the school grounds playing musical instruments in celebration of all their classroom friends who have birthdays in the summer. Five children celebrated their summer birthdays together; they each received a birthday book, made of pictures from all their friends in the class.

Each year at Kimberton Waldorf School begins and ends with a Rose Ceremony. In the fall, at our welcome assembly, it is the role of the new twelfth graders to present roses to the budding first graders as they begin their journey through the grades. At the end of the school year, another Rose Ceremony took place. The first graders, grown in height and confidence, offered roses to their twelfth grade buddies, marking another significant transition. Click here to read more and view photos.
