Fireweed Academy held a fantastic May Day Celebration on May 4 (despite the snow) led by the efforts of Fireweed students, teachers and families and supported by local businesses, Homer musicians and many more. A huge thank you to all who participated. Fireweed students led crafts, activities and May Day dancing. Many parents and friends helped plan and bring the celebration to life.
Thank you to the businesses and individuals who contributed amazing desserts for the Dessert Challenge. Thank you to Ma and Pa Kettle Corn and Fireweed families for donating healthy and delicious snacks. We enjoyed the Homer Ukelele group, incredible Marimba by the Tamba! Hadzi group and Gabi Husmann’s May Day songs. Thank you to teachers and staff for your creativity and investment over and beyond the classroom.
And to all who donated to the Student Activities Fund or bought a raffle ticket or put money in the donation jars at whatever level you were able, together we raised nearly $5,000 that will enrich our children’s education next year through field trips, Artist in Schools and other student projects. But more importantly, we came together to celebrate our school, our community and our children. Such a joy to see our garden grow and share the day with you all.
