Tomorrow the school will celebrate Winter Spiral all day long. 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 and candles will glimmer. Each child will walk the spiral alone in the darkness, 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 their own candle from the center light and walks out of the spiral, placing their candle in the spiral along the way.
The schedule for school students is as follows:
8:45 am Kindergarten classes
9:45 am Nursery
10:30 am 1st, 4th, and 5th grades
2:00 pm 2nd and 3rd grades
Parents are welcome to attend their child’s spiral. Please arrive on time for your child’s class, late comers will not be admitted.
The Winter Spiral will also be open for the community from 6:00 pm until 7:00 pm.
