Third Haven Friends Meeting (the Quakers) has released its Fall 2019 Calendar of First Day School activities.
For those of you unfamiliar with Quakerspeak, First Day School is called Sunday School at most churches.
From Sept. 8 through Dec. 22, Third Haven will host a special program for children every Sunday morning. Three different programs will be featured:
These sessions focus on helping kids build their toolbox of mindfulness techniques through immersion in nature. They will be led by Third Haven’s talented summer camp teachers, Cherie Baron and Kristen Hanlon.
FAITH & PLAY STORIES
These are beautiful stories about the roots of Quakerism and Quaker values, told by teachers trained in a Montessori-inspired manner. Susan Claggett will be the program leader.
QUERIES & REFLECTIONS
This monthly dialogue taps into the natural wisdom, curiosity and wonder of young children to explore how to think clearly about life’s biggest queries – e.g., What is friendship? Happiness? Justice? Love? How do we know ourselves?What role do we play in the world? For the fall, the emphasis will be on the Quaker value of Peace. Jeanne Halpin will be the program leader.
