Final Preparations for the Winter Cafe

At The Clearwater School today students and staff were making final preparations for tomorrow's Winter Cafe (Saturday, February 2, 2013). Everyone was full of excitement and nervousness during the dress rehearsal, and lots of kinks were identified and worked out for the staging.

More work, time and attention has gone into this student performance event than ever before. There is much to be proud of and much to enjoy.

Enjoy these pre-performance photos. There are more after the jump.

The Winter Cafe is preceded by a Clearwater community potluck at 12:30, and the Winter Cafe program begins at 2:00 PM. A $5 donation is suggested.
The Winter Cafe, also marks the official kick-off of a Clearwater effort to raise funds for our grounds upkeep and development. Staff and students will be working hard on a marathon of weeding, grounds-clearing, and landscape restoration. In a concept similar to a walk-a-thon, we'll ask for people to support us by the hour. Students and staff have each pledged to work ten hours pulling up blackberry roots and reed canary grass, and tending the native trees and shrubs planted more than a year ago. Parents, friends and relatives are welcome to join in the work and to sponsor a student's work with a pledge. All proceeds will be directed towards enhancing our campus.
