Assemblies and Performances
Grade school students perform five times during the school year: at the Harvest
Assembly (October), at Winterfest (February), at a Spring Assembly (March), at
Music Night (early May), and at the Closing Assembly on the last day of school.
Different grades may perform at each assembly. Watch the newsletter for details or ask
your child’s teacher. All CWS families are warmly invited and strongly encouraged to
attend these performances.
Each class, grades 1-8, performs a play once a year. Theatrical performances enhance main lesson study and offer students another view into their research of history, literature, and language arts. Dramatic performance allows children the opportunity to act, practice the art of public speech, intone emotion, understand human character, and memorize lines. Students, parents, and CWS friends eagerly await the debut of the class plays each year!
Other annual community events at the school are the Early Childhood Teas, Parent Education Evenings, Grandparents’ Day, and the end-of-year Barn Dance as well as a myriad of individual class or family-friendly gatherings. This year's offerings also included a Bingo Night, Eurythmy Workshop, Playdates in the Park, Pizza Night, etc. For more information about our two major fudraising events, the Spring Beach Bash and the Holiday Bazaar, please read below.
