The Festival of Lights has a long history at Children’s Day. We are celebrating the light or spirit of our children which lightens the cold, dark days of winter.
The Event starts at 6:00pm on 2/18/2016, so please arrive a bit early for a good seat. Please let your child’s teacher know if you child or family will not attend.
Children often enjoy wearing their good clothes for the Festival. If your child will be in school all day before, you may want to bring the good clothes, so the child can enjoy the day at school and not have to worry about ruining special clothes.
Each child will participate in the way that he or she feels comfortable. Most children enjoy walking with battery-lit candles into the darkened classroom alone for the Festival. Others enjoy the security of mom or dad or even big brother or sister along side of them. Some children like to participate at our celebration line. Others want to participate by watching the line, signing the songs from the security of their parents lap. Just follow the lead of your child. Refreshments will be served afterwards in the Evergreen Community.
