May Day Celebration

The First, Second, and Third grades gathered together the first week of May to celebrate May Day, an ancient Spring festival celebrated by many cultures in the Northern Hemisphere. Singing, dancing, and anonymous gift giving are traditional features of this festival and the lower grades included them all in our celebration.

We danced the Hal-an-Tow and Shepherd’s Hey.
The children were paired up to gather flowers and make decorative wreaths with finger-knit hangers and Happy May Day cards.
 
 
 
The students went in groups to hang their gifts on doors all around the school.
We ended the morning with a picnic snack together on the field.
