We celebrated our THANKSGIVING HARVEST LUNCH this afternoon. The whole school gathered together around a warm bonfire for a community meal that the children prepared themselves. Elementary students created and wrote invitations to their younger counterparts who partnered with them at the Feast. After lunch, each Elementary student wrote something they are thankful for on a piece of paper to throw in the fire. The paper is rolled and tied with a ribbon and as they throw it in the fire and it burns, the words turn to ashes, the ashes turn to smoke and the smoke is released into the universe. "After all the universe is on the side of justice." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Sixth Principle of the peaceful community
Many thanks to all those who helped volunteer today!
