Winter Festival

Snowman Bulletin Board Evergreen School

Snowman detail

Did you know that Saturday, December 21 will be the shortest day of the year?  The sun will not rise until 7:23 AM.  The sun will set at4:49 PM.  It will be a dark, damp and chilly day.  Our elementary class has already had lessons on the path of the Earth and the science behind the solstice.

What can we do on this bleak and dreary day but celebrate? Hibernating is not an option.

The day before the solstice, the Winter Festival will be Evergreen’s way of using the warmth and joy of family and friendship to thaw the coldness of the season.   We are named Evergreen for a reason! We look forward to seeing our parents at our traditional mid-winter event.  In addition to the music performances by each class and our school song, we celebrate the children who are moving up to a new academic level in January.   And then our all-school potluck.   Enough to keep us warm until spring!
