Stories teach us about the world: about the way things are, the people that live in it, and the consequences of the choices we make. Stories take the stuff of the everyday world we inhabit and imbue it with meaning, destiny, and transcendence, transforming our imaginations and making them able to see the True, the Good, and the Beautiful not just in the imaginary worlds of the stories, but in the real world they imitate.
On Friday, October 30
, the Lower School will host our second ever Storybook Festival
in celebration of our shared love of stories and the worlds of wonder and beauty to be found between the covers of a good book. Each grade level has a unique schedule of events planned, but we will all spend the day listening to, reading, and participating in activities drawn from some of the best children’s stories.
October 30th is an early-release Friday; drop-off and pick-up will be unaffected by the Storybook Festival.
