The grade school gathered at Camden Hills State Park for our annual Michaelmas pageant and hike. The teachers were particularly pleased to see so many parents and siblings in attendance (while still managing to stay under the governor’s group assembly limit of 100!) The weather was glorious, and Mr. Kaczor and Ms Doshi’s classes put on a beautiful pageant, complete with a music-loving dragon, brave blacksmith’s daughter, helpful angels, and battling knights— topped off by a visit from Michael, who appeared in a blaze of sunlight to save the day. After the pageant, teachers and students trooped off to visit the summit of Mt. Battie and to enjoy a glorious day of dappled sunshine, merrily little breezes, and warm friendship.

(Thank you, Robin Horty, for the use of your dragon!)
