Michaelmas Festival
1:50 pm - 2:50 pm
Sidewalk / Parking lot vestibule at Rogers Park Campus

Join the crowds watching this festival in which students from grades 2-12 celebrate the principles of courage, initiative and transformation as depicted in the story of Saint Michael. To honor these essential human capacities, the elementary, middle and high school students join in parts to perform a play of St. Michael and the Princess taking on the fearless dragon. After the play, the 12th graders will “ring the iron” and the classes will collectively throw into the fire, something they've written on pieces of paper that they wish to transform in themselves. Parents are invited to attend this outdoor spectacle to witness and support the children.

High School Contemporary Issues Colloquium
8:00 am - 3:00 pm
Various Classrooms

We were prompted to organize this event by the expressed desire of the high school students to understand the current issues of our world and ask what their next step might be to make a difference. For the full day, presenters will share their areas of expertise with the students. These experts from the field share their knowledge and unique perspectives to offer glimpses of what a young person can do to “take the next step.” The day will run on the "Free University" model: the High School will divide up (not by grades or age) by student interest. The students will participate in multiple workshops and a final closing session where the whole high school will come together in the auditorium to discuss their impressions of themes/topics from the day and develop a school-wide conversation on the act of participating in change.
