Michaelmas Celebrations (in-class activity)
We celebrate Michaelmas each year in the classes with the children. Michaelmas is a celebration of courage and strength while also preparing for the darker days ahead. The children will help press homemade apple cider, make applesauce, and prepare a lovely feast to enjoy with their friends. We talk about, model, and encourage strength and working through difficult challenges.
