Latvian School Calendar and Events:

Latvian School classes are in Latvian and in English.   

There are many special events to look forward to.   These include a skerslu gajiens (treasure hunt), celebrating Martini (an ancient tradition similar to Halloween), baking piparkukas (spice cookies) before Christmas, and using onion skins and spring flowers to color Easter eggs.    There is an annual ski trip to the Catskill Mountains.

Our schedule for Fall 2019/ Spring 2020 will be finalized late August.    School is held on some Saturday and some Sundays.    If you can not make a regular commitment to Latvian School but still want to connect with the Latvian community, we welcome you to our special events.   Feel free to contact Silvija at LatvianSchool@LatvianLuthChurchPhila.org if you have any questions or if you would like to join us!
