Harvest Festival 4:30-7pm

Harvest FestHarvest Festival 2014Harvest Festival 2014 We celebrate with crafts, games, apple cider, and food. We usually gather at the school in wholesome and or imitatible costumes, such as firemen or farmers, avoiding commercialized characters, superheroes and scary dress. The children take part in crafts, hear a story, we share a meal, and song around the bonfire. The RCS parents are usually expected to provide a soup or some kind of baked good to share and the public is invited!

November 9th , 2014

Martinmas Festival (Lantern Walk), 6pm

It is held on a November evening as the nights grow longer and colder.  The children make lanterns and sing lantern songs in class for weeks before.  We all join together for hot apple cider and a story around the fire, then light our lanterns and venture out into the cold, dark night, singing and lighting the path along the way with our own small lights, which together make a larger, brighter light.


December, 2014

Winter Spiral Festival

Please RSVP  if you’d like to attend and not currently enrolled at RCS

It is held in mid December.  All children and their families are invited to attend, even if it is not a regular school day. Like the Lantern Walk, it carries the theme of our own little light joining the light of others in order to bring a greater light into the world.  Each child walks the pine bough spiral carrying a candle in an apple holder.  The candle is lit on the large white candle in the center and then carried out the other side, placing it on a golden star to light the path as they leave.  As each child passes through, the room grows brighter and brighter. This is our most reverent of all our festivals and carries a silent, sweet but solemn tone.
