School Spirit Day

Gathering Together as a Community!


Primary through Middle School children gathered together to celebrate our third School Spirit Day of the year. School Spirit Days are joyous celebrations which spiral our awareness from self to our community, to our school, and ultimately connect us to the wondrous earth which we all inhabit.

It was a colorful assembly on this year’s theme, The Four Elements: Water, Earth, Fire, and Air.  The focus was on Fire, both literally and spiritually. The children watched a short video on the importance of fire and how it helps to keep the cycle of life going in our forests. We talked about the inner light/fire in each of us and the web of connections which create and maintain a strong community like ours. 
The Upper Elementary Level 2 children reenacted a scene from Harry Potter’s Goblet of Fire.  Instead of names springing from the fire, attributes from the “Montessori Portrait of a Graduate” emerged. Personal qualities which will develop in each individual student and ultimately build social values and responsibilities;
  • Consistently models trustworthiness and respect in all interactions,one-on one and in group settings.
  • Helps other children with lessons, finding solutions, and planning.
  • Facilitates group idea finding, and creativity.
  • Helps friends solve problems.
  • Models grace and courtesy.
  • Actively nurtures harmony in the community.
Magically a huge net bedecked with holographic circles emerged from the fire representing the concept of Indra’s Net. The metaphor of Indra’s Jeweled Net is:
  • At each juncture there lies a jewel;
  • Each jewel reflects all the other jewels in this cosmic matrix.
  • Every jewel represents an individual life form, atom, cell or unit of consciousness.
  • Each jewel, in turn, is intrinsically and intimately connected to all the others;
  • Thus, a change in one gem is reflected in all the others.

Mr. Mitnick played the guitar and lead us in “This Little Light of Mine”,”You are My Sunshine”, and the 

school songs. We had the exceptional pleasure of hearing Kristen VonWachenfeldt sing ” You Got a Friend”.
