Mazal Tov on your student's birth-day.



are always special at Lehrman and as your child’s birthday approaches we wanted to remind you of possibilities for sharing the celebration with your child’s Lehrman friends, as well as provide helpful information as you plan birthday parties outside of the school.



Happy Birthday at Lehrman:


K-5 students: are called up during t’fillah for a rousing tri-lingual “Happy Birthday” on the Monday of their birthday week.  

ECD students: are serenaded during Kabbalat Shabbat of their birthday week.

Children whose families participate in the PTC Birthday Book Club receive their book(s) or book certificate(s) on Friday (September 30, October 28, November 18, December 23, January 27, February 24, March 24, April 28, May 26, June 9).



The Celebration May Continue…


K-5 students: birthday cake (treats) may be enjoyed with the entire grade during your child’s lunch time.  Please let your child’s teacher know in advance that you will be bringing something in.*

ECD students: arrange with the teacher a time and date that works conveniently for you and your child’s class. Please use the Lehrman Classroom Birthday Planner (available from your teacher or in the School Office) to arrange your child's in-class party.

*Lehrman Birthday Bakery: Cupcakes and cakes may be custom ordered in the main office and picked up in the school cafeteria. Click HERE to download an order form.
If you wish to purchase treats from an outside bakery, we permit only three additional establishments: Gallery of Cakes, Bunnie Cakes, and Winn Dixie Aventura (details on our Allergy Update).


Please keep in mind that all ECD school parties will be limited to your child’s class, and to your child’s grade in K-5, and are limited to the dessert you provide. 

Please do not send in goody bags or arrange for activities.



Birthday Celebrations Outside of School


Invitations: Lehrman is glad to help you by putting invitations in classmates’ backpacks provided the entire class or all children of one gender is/are invited. Clearly it would be insensitive and inconsistent with the Jewish values we seek to instill in the children to leave anyone out.

Dates for parties: Families should not plan any birthday celebrations on Shabbat or any major Jewish holidays.

Food: All birthday parties should include certified kosher food so that all students and families who attend can participate and enjoy the party comfortably. We will be glad to assist you if you have questions about this (see our Restaurant Guide).


We wish your child the

Happiest Birthday

and look forward to another great year!
