St. Martin 2016

RSVP for Martinszug

As is custom in many regions of Germany and at the GSC, we will be celebrating St. Martin by crafting lanterns in the classrooms and holding a Laternenumzug (lantern parade)

This year we are partnering with Our Saviour Church in Fairfield for our St. Martin’s celebration. The November 11th event will start at 7:30 pm. Besides the lantern parade (in the dark and with live music!), there will be a short St. Martin play. Refreshments will be served.

We are hoping for a huge turn out as it will be a great opportunity to meet other families outside of our usual Saturday morning setting AND a great celebration of an authentic St. Martin's Day. Note that there is no school the following day Nov 12, so you will be able to sleep in.

Please RSVP here - this will only take 15 seconds and you can do it right away from your mobile device.

Our Saviour Church is located at:

160 Hill Farm Road
Fairfield, CT 06430

Younger classes will craft their lanterns on Oct 29 from 11:45am - 12:30pm. Teachers will advise if your child’s class will be participating in the lantern crafting.

We will also have a pre-school Laternenumzug in the school hallways at Parent Day on Nov 5.
