Mustard Seed Celebrations

February 16, 2021 | Chris Gasca

Despite the challenges and obstacles that we are all facing as a people world wide, here at Mustard Seed we are still finding ways to celebrate together and continue to build community with fun, love, and kindness. Last Thursday, there were 3 different celebrations that we had together as a school.

We began the day with our celebration of Mardi Gras. We started with a special worship that explained all the spiritual importances of Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday as some might call it. The three colors purple, green, and gold represent justice, faith, and power. During worship we also learned why Mardi Gras is also called Fat Tuesday, and how it goes hand in hand with Ash Wednesday.


On the same day we were also celebrating  I Love Math Day. The 7th and 8th graders constructed fun games with all kinds of thought out rules for the lower school to enjoy together. The students had so much fun as they celebrated the joys of working on math problems together with the common goal of reaching the finish line in a great math game!

If all that wasn’t enough, we were also celebrating Valentines Day! Students in the Forests class and Meadows class were able to share cards and notes with each other that really showed how important each member of our community really is to us. It was very touching to see the extremely kind words that were written on the cards!
