On Wednesday night, the 4th and 5th graders helped kick off the holiday season by singing some Christmas carols at the annual Harbor Point Tree Lighting. Cheered on by many parents and community members, the students helped bring a little holiday cheer with "Bleakmidwinter's Silent Night," a medley of "In the Bleak Midwinter" and "Silent Night," as well at "Dreaming of a Blue Christmas," an original blues medley of some holiday favorites.
News & Events
The Waterside community came together on Tuesday November 21to celebrate its annual Thanksgiving luncheon. Students and faculty gathered in the gym to give thanks, and the School's beloved chef, Ingrid Moore, prepared a traditional feast fit for 200 guests. Instead of sitting with their own classes, students dispersed among the long, family style tables; younger students ate and visited with older students, and family members and faculty members served and joined the children for the meal. Each class prepared a presentation or artwork for the luncheon, all of which reflected the children's sense of gratitude, love, and joy. It was evident throughout the event that the Waterside community truly remember what we are thankful for and appreciated the many blessings in our lives.
