Working Outdoors

Monday saw the whole school working outside, helping to weed and improve the kindergarten playground.  This was part of the annual Michaelmas celebration.  Unfamiliar to many, Michaelmas was celebrated in England on September 29 and marked the end (and beginning) of the farmer’s year.  At Cape Ann Waldorf School, it’s a time to work on school projects, as well as use one’s muscles in the annual all-school tug-of-war.
