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.
This year’s Winter Spiral will take place on Friday, December 10th throughout the day. Parents are welcome to attend, but please check with your child’s teacher for their class’s time slot and please be sure you are here exactly on time. Late comers will not be admitted, A community spiral will be held on the 10th as well, beginning at 6:00 pm and ending when the last participant leaves the spiral.
