THE BLOOMING ALMOND TREE PARTY

“Let the dry leaves fall,
may the white flowers be born … “

José Hierro

On Friday, February 21st, the traditional Almond Tree Festival will take place. We will celebrate that, during these dates, the fields are dressed for partying and the almond trees are embellished with their best clothes painting the landscape of a bright white.

This year we also have another good reason to celebrate in community: together we will make the forest really a forest.

That is why this year’s costume theme will be the forest and the beings that inhabit it, and each cycle will be dressed in a theme related to this:

Nursery: elves, fairies and magical beings of the forest
First cycle: forest dwarfs
Second cycle: forest animals
Third cycle: Gods of Olympus

Recommendations:
-The costumes should be homemade, it is not about buying them but about dedicating a time together to make them.
-They should be simple and comfortable, as we will walk like every Friday, and should allow freedom of movements for playing outside.
-Also keep in mind that at 8.30 it is still cold.

Schedule:

8:30 am: Students will meet at school. From there they will walk to the forest.
Bring: breakfast, water, suitable walking shoes, complete change of clothes (socks included).

12 pm: Meeting of families in the forest. We invite you to come in disguise to share this moment in community.
Family workshops:
_Drawing from live: how do you imagine the forest?
_Seed workshop
Bring: garden tools, seeds, lunch to share according to the principles of the school.

1:30 pm: Shared lunch
Families who do not stay for lunch, can pick up their children in the forest at this time.
