Amazing things happen in our final week before the vacation begins: our holiday walk on Monday, two good work days on Tuesday and Wednesday, the staff party, the students' breakfast on Thursday, and the Celebration of Light. I am also grateful for the wonderful parent support I've received from the parents of my new students.
There are a variety of special days that families celebrate this time of year, and some do not celebrate any holiday; however, we do know that light is important in every life. Every year, each class and group (like the trip teachers, math and music teachers, etc.) create a display of some kind that shows various ways that something or someone lights up our lives. Today is the last day of fall, and then the winter solstice, a special day to many throughout the world. Here are a few pictures of different ways some of the classes shared who or what brought light into their lives.
|My students created a box home sculpture, lit them, and wrote how their homes provided light in their lives.|
|Ingrid's primary class built scenes with the people who light up their lives. You can see in the next picture why I'm celebrating this one.|
|The overnight teachers and the music teacher showed how much light comes into |
our lives when we sing while camping.
|Our buddy class created a gratitude tree and hung paper "leaves' of gratitude for people and things.|
|I thought I'd leave you with this primary class's question.|
