CG-G3 Evening Lantern Walk

Thursday, November 9th
Children's Garden (Preschool and Kindergartens) & Elementary Grades 1-3.

Throughout the year, treasured festivals connect us with the cycle of nature, establish a seasonal rhythm for the children, and strengthen our community. The Lantern Walk is an early evening event for Children's Garden through Grade Three, with caregivers and younger siblings accompanying. 

We will gather together at dusk, carrying handmade lanterns, symbolizing our own individual light, and journey through the Waldorf Woods and outdoor campus. Parents are asked to walk with their children and to help us preserve the mood of the evening by joining in the singing during the community circle and encouraging the children in reverent silence and calm for the walk. As this is a quiet, contemplative celebration, please refrain from using flashlights and cell phones.

Here you’ll find some of the songs we’ll be singing together, please give them a read so you can join in - it's an important part of the celebration. These are also available on Spotify.  

Leave yourself ample time in order to park and arrive by 5:45pm for the start of our community singing circle. The procession through the woods will start sharply at 6pm.
