In the autumn, Michaelmas (pronounced Mick-el-mas) helps us celebrate the harvest. Michaelmas is an ancient festival that inspires inner courage during a time when the outer world is growing darker. Through this we kindle our own inner strength, as the season transitions from the outer warmth of summer to the coolness of fall. This festival takes place near the autumnal equinox when the days grow short. We turn inwards, towards ourselves and our community for inner warmth. LEARN MORE ABOUT MICHAELMAS
This year a special poem will be performed by the 1st & 2nd graders followed by the Michaelmas Song, Firmly on the Earth I Stand, performed by the 3rd & 4th graders.
