Season of Light, celebrating traditions together

Our school families come from all over San Francisco, the greater Bay Area, and many parts of the world. In our community lives individual traditions and cultures that shine brightly in their own unique way. Fall and Winter in particular are filled with festivals that bring the gift of light as we move into cold, darker days. Our whole community reflects in this moment the collective flame that has been kindled by the many individual traditions we honor during this season—from Diwali to Martinmas, Michaelmas to Día de Los Muertos, to the coming of Chanukah and the Garden of Light.

“We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, 
understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity.”
- Malcolm X
