Holiday Celebrations

The classes celebrate holidays from a traditional and ethnic perspective rather than a religious one. To recognize the importance individual holidays may have to children, we welcome parents and children to share their celebrations with their class. In general, holidays are observed through food preparation, stories, songs and art projects. As much as possible, we wish to avoid the over-commercialization of a holiday and instill in the children a sense of celebration - sharing with others. Please contact your child's teacher if you wish to share a holiday tradition with a class. Please let us know if your child does not participate in holiday traditions.
