Lantern Walk 2016

TRCCS Lantern Walk

Tuesday November 22nd

Schedule:

  • Early Childhood classes: 5:30 pm
  • Ms. Stacey and Ms. Teresa’s classes: 6:15 pm
  • Ms. Maggie and Ms. Emily’s classes: 7:00 pm

Students are making lanterns with Ms. Kristy in Practical Arts class or with their classroom teachers, and are excited for this upcoming school festival. Community members can join the students and families as they walk the beautiful trails at CWES. The walk will begin at the Early Childhood Playground this year, so please gather there. The walk will be lit by lanterns, but know that it will be dark and the trail is through the woods. This year participants will get to hear the story of Martin’s Lantern, told by Ms. Laurie. We will then walk the trails in silence making our way to the Sunset Fire Bowl where we will sing the Lantern Songs around the fire. Ms. Chris has shared recordings of herself singing the songs on the TRCCS Family Facebook page to help you learn the songs ahead of time. All students are singing these songs in class, and would love to also sing them at home with you. Lyrics have been included. The walk will end at Sunset Lodge where we will have hot chocolate, hot apple cider, and popcorn.

The festival is helping the students prepare for the longer nights and coming of winter. When the children make a lantern they may feel that they are giving protection to their own little “flame” that is shining, so that they may carry it safely through the dark world. This is a time for inner reflection, we would like you to walk with your child(ren), not running on the trails, and take this time to be quiet together. Socializing can take place once at Sunset Lodge after the walk.  If you have children in multiple classes you can choose to do the walk multiple times or just walk with one group. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact your student’s classroom teacher or call the office. It is wonderful to see the lanterns and hear all of our voices in song for this special festival.

Lantern Walk Songs 2016

I go outside with my lantern :

I go outside with my lantern, my lantern goes with me
Above the stars are shining bright, down here on Earth shine we.
The cock does crow, the cat meows, la bimmel, la bammel, la boom.
‘Neath starry dome till we go home, la bimmel, la bammel, la boom.

I go outside with my lantern, my lantern goes with me
Above the stars are shining bright, down here on Earth shine we.
So shine your light through the still dark night, la bimmel, la bammel, la boom
‘Neath starry dome till we go home, la bimmel, la bammel, la boom.

My lantern! My lantern! :

My lantern! My lantern! 
Sun and moon and stars 
Put out all your lights 
Put out all your lights 
That my lantern can truly shine bright. 

Glimmer, lantern, glimmer :

Glimmer, lantern, glimmer
Little stars a-shimmer
Over meadow, moor and dale
Flitter, flutter, elfin veil
Pee-wit, pee-wit, tikka-tikka-tik
Ru-coo, ru-coo.

Glimmer, lantern, glimmer
Little stars a-shimmer
Over rock and stock and stone
Wandering, skipping, little gnome
Pee-wit, pee-wit, tikka-tikka-tik
Ru-coo, ru-coo
