FALL BALL AND HARVEST FEST REDUX…
In case you missed one of these affairs, or didn’t see the pics, I am including all the photo albums of the Fall Ball and Harvest Festival from our parent photographers for your viewing pleasure—chances are, your child is in there somewhere, and they are extraordinary photographs. Almost extraordinary as the festivals themselves, which are the best, child-centered, community-building events around. This year was my 12th (!) Harvest Fest, and the looks of earnestness and accomplishment on our students’ faces as they delivered their cans were identical to the one on my daughter’s face when she delivered her first box of mac and cheese to the soup kitchen with Velda’s PreK in 2001. These events stay with our kids whether they, or we, realize it, and they form the heart of our school.
