Monday 13th December
Today the Second Grade led the school in the celebration of the beautiful festival honoring Santa Lucia. It is our school tradition for a Second Grade girl, dressed all in white with a red sash and a crown of candles on her head, to lead the procession of the rest of the class, also dressed in white. The children visit every classroom with a basket of warm buns, symbolizing warmth and light in this cold, dark season. The festival is based on a tale from Sweden.
