Each November as the days grow shorter and darkness lengthens, Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School holds a Lantern Walk and Pageant in celebration of Martinmas. Our festival honors the light of compassion necessary at all times, but especially so as we prepare ourselves to experience the dark and cold of our winter months.
Please join us on Friday, November 9 to honor the light that resides within each of us. In the challenge of the times we live in, it is increasingly important to look to the light and beauty that our shared lives can create.
Kindergarten will have their Lantern Walk at 3:30pm.
Lower School Children (Grades 1 – 3) should report to their classrooms between 4:00-4:15.
Parents will gather on the playing field near the four-square court. Families with children in the lower school will follow a procession of their children’s classes across the bridge and into the woods, turning toward the swim pond.
Please help us to keep the mood of this reverent event by joining us in song and not talking at all during the walk through the woods. Please also help us by making sure that all cell phones are turned off. To ensure that this is a safe event for all, make sure that you accompany your own children back through the woods on your way home.
Dress warmly and wear good walking shoes. We look forward to sharing this wonderful festival with all of you!
