Spirit Day

Take a Stand Against Bullying - Go Purple!

Take a Stand Against Bullying - Go Purple! Wear purple festive dress and decorate the school with rainbows on Tuesday, October 21. Join the KWS parent, faculty, staff, and student community in wearing anything festively purple. Millions wear purple on Spirit Day and decorate their homes, schools and workspaces with rainbows in a stand against bullying and to show their support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. Kimberton Waldorf School’s intention in celebrating Spirit Day is to honor the LGBTQ community as well as diversity in all its many forms. Observed annually since 2010, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, and public figures wear purple, which symbolizes 'spirit' on the rainbow flag. National Spirit Day is celebrated on October 16, 2014, but we are choosing to celebrate it on October 21. We look forward to seeing you all in your fabulous purple attire, and to seeing rainbows drawn, painted, modeled, knitted, and displayed all over campus.

Diwali Celebration

Diwali:  The festival of Diwali, perhaps the most well-known of the Indian festivals, is celebrated throughout India as well as in Indian communities throughout the world. The "festival of lights" is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. Kimberton Waldorf School has been celebrating this festival for the last six years. Over the years, the celebrations have grown in richness, size and community participation. This year too, the festival will again be celebrated in its true spirit by the KWS community, family and friends.

What can you expect:  Through the collaborative efforts of our Festivals Committee, Food For Thought Program, our Diversity Committee and a devoted group of our families who are native to India, we bring you an amazing evening of food, fun and nourishing celebration. Come enjoy delicious and exotic culinary delights lovingly prepared using traditional home recipes. The rich cultural program will include a welcome ceremony, cultural activities such as rangoli designs (floor decorations), mehandi (henna) painting, decorating and lighting of traditional clay lamps, chanting shanti mantras (prayers for peace), and finally, a wonderful array of classical music and dance performances by students, parents and friends. We will finish the evening with a fantastic firework display.

The colors, fragrances, flowers, rangoli, Indian attire, music, and dance will fill your senses and immerse you into a very rich and old Indian Culture and transport you to an enchanting world. Do not miss this fabulous event, which is one of the larger community events at our school.

Cost: There will not be an admission fee. However, we will be soliciting donations at the door (suggested donation of $10) to cover the costs associated with the elaborate feast.

Volunteers Needed: We will need support with food preparation, set up, serving, and cleanup and would love you to join our enthusiastic team. Please contact Lael for more information about how you can get involved by calling 610-933-3635 x128 or email .

Please RSVP by registering for this event at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/kws-diwali-festival-2014-tickets-13411697749. Please let us know that you are coming so that we can plan properly. (You do not need to print the "free tickets" or bring them to the event.)
