Celebrate World Kindness Day at the Inaugural SFS Family Lantern Walk
St. Francis School Families and Friends: You are invited to join us for a lantern-lit kindness walk to celebrate World Kindness Day! This meditative, outdoor family walk – for all ages – will be on Friday, November 12, on our beautiful Goshen Campus in the fields and forest of our nature preserve.
Your children may have told you about the heart rock, a beautiful heart-shaped boulder in the center of the forest behind the School (which is still easily accessible by little legs). Each family will carry a lantern and make a journey together from the Play Shelter (near the Gym) to the heart rock and back to the Play Shelter along a pathway also lit by lanterns.
We will gather to celebrate kindness, belonging, compassion, and community! We will welcome the darkness of the winter months by keeping our lights lit within. Together, we will create warmth and celebrate the light the world needs. This meditative walk will give each of us the opportunity to reflect on our own individual gifts and talents that we share with our community.
Food and drink will be provided (so as best to avoid young, hangry lantern walkers). As we gather at 5:30, you are welcome to enjoy pizza. After the walk, we will enjoy warm beverages and snacks. Please dress for the weather as this is a rain or shine event (in the case of extreme weather, the back-up date would be November 19 and a notice will be sent if postponed).
Students have been working hard to make their own lanterns, which will be at School and available for this event. You are welcome to – and encouraged to – bring additional lanterns for the evening walk.
