Michaelmas falls during the harvest season, midway between the northern hemisphere’s summer and winter solstices. Although Michaelmas is not commonly celebrated in North America, it is an important festival in Waldorf schools throughout the world. The festival celebrates and tells the tale of brave St. Michael whose story gives human beings the courage to meet the trials of the present and the confidence to look to the challenges of the future without fear.
Our grades students are preparing a pageant that depicts the courage of St. Michael, and we look forward to sharing it with you on Friday, September 29th at 8:30 am in the gym! An offering of Dragon Bread will follow immediately after, with Field Games for Grades 1 – 8 beginning at 10:30 am!
*Early Childhood families will receive information from their class teachers about how Michaelmas in celebrated in EC classrooms.
