Our annual Winter Spiral will be held on Friday, December 14th from 6:30-7:30pm in the auditorium.
This special and solemn celebration of the Advent and winter season is designed to remind us that even in the darkest of winter we can still find light to lead us on our way. In a darkened room, all will enter in silence. A pine bough spiral will grace the floor. Each child will walk the spiral alone, carrying an unlit candle placed in an apple holder. The child progresses toward the center of the spiral towards a glowing candle. The student then lights his/her own candle from the center light and walks out of the spiral, placing his/her candle in the spiral along the way. After each has taken their turn, the path will be glimmering with candles, and the students will leave quietly.
Each class will walk the spiral during the school day, and you are welcome to attend. Please check with your child’s teacher for their scheduled time slot and be sure you arrive exactly on time. A community spiral will be held in the evening from 6:30-7:30 pm for parents and children who wish to walk the spiral in the darkness of the night. Please arrive on time for this reverent event and be prepared to stay for the whole hour. Latecomers will not be admitted due to the disruption that this causes.
