Festivals and Community

A rich and lively calendar of diverse seasonal and cultural festivals enriches the program at VCS and provides an opportunity for the whole Village community to come together in joyous celebration.   Festivals integrate the curriculum and include planning and participation by the entire school community - students, teachers and parents.   Festivals include potluck feasts and performances by the children, including singing, dancing, and often a play or recitation. The excitement and community feeling generated by these festivals bonds us all closer together.

Festivals vary somewhat each year, depending on VCS families and curriculum.

Our year often includes events honoring:

  • Harvest Festival (October)
  • Dia de Los Muertos (beginning of November)
  • Festival of Lights/Winter Solstice (December)
  • Martin Luther King Jr. (January)
  • Cesar Chavez (February)
  • May Festival (May)
  • End of Year Celebration
