Latvian School Calendar and Events:
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ALL CLASSES ARE ON ZOOM.
Latvian School classes are in Latvian and in English.
Please see our webpage for more information.
There are many special events. These include celebrating
Martini (an ancient tradition
similar to Halloween), a traditional Eglite with poems
for Santa Claus at Christmas time, and using onion skins
and spring flowers to color Easter eggs. Students
perform plays, poems or songs for Draudzigais aicinajums
in February and there are always folk dances performed
at the ceremony culminating the school year. .
If you cannot
make a regular commitment to Latvian School but still
want to connect with the Latvian community, we welcome
you to our special events or as a guest for the day. Feel free to
contact Silvija at LatvianSchool@LatvianLuthChurchPhila.org
if you have any questions or if you would like to join
