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.
