Sukkafest—October 13, 4:30-6PM

sukkahOctober 13, 2014 – All students are invited to hang out, in and around our school sukkah. There will be music, art projects, food, astronomy discussions, cooking demos, candy sukkah building and a collection of items for those in our community who, more often than not, are living with shelter insecurity and impermanence.  Afternoon buses will run on a normal schedule, so students who wish to participate should make arrangements to be picked up or spend the night with local friends. We hope to see you there!
