At Mountain Oak School, we embrace the changing rhythms of the calendar year through a variety of festivals and activities. We feel that participation by the children and parents in these festivals is meaningful and strengthens the community. We acknowledge the seasonal changes taking place in the natural world, and incorporate these changes into the class curriculum.
We gather together to share assemblies, play performances and annual events to celebrate our community. Families are encouraged to participate in both school-wide and classroom activities, and to bring similar celebrations into their own homes. It is the strong adherence to maintaining the daily and seasonal rhythms that brings healing to children and adults, and helps to directly support the education of the child. Some dates listed below are subject to change. Please see school calendar for those changes.
