Graduation and Celebration

In honor of the many years of Upattinas School, there will be a celebration for all who wish to come, both for and after the graduation ceremony on June 6, 2014, beginning at 4:30 PM. Graduation itself, however, will be traditional, and centered on those who are the graduates of the current school year and their families.

There will be a dinner after the graduation, to which all are invited. We welcome contributions of food for this meal. The dish you provide should not need refrigeration or heat, and should be in a disposable container.

After dinner, the graduation tent will become the center of gathering for anyone who wishes to share entertainment or thoughts about our lives together over the years. We hope to have lots of music, poetry, pictures, drumming, and conversation.

On Saturday, June 7, from 1:00 - 4:00, the buildings will be open and the tent will remain up for group gatherings of those who would like to spend more time together. This will be a "self-organizing" time with no particular agenda. Groups might like to invite particular people from their own time with us, including staff members. Picnics will be welcome, and whatever food is left from the night before will be available, as will various soft drinks and water.

Please watch the web site and Facebook for developing information, and post on Facebook or contact us at the office if you have questions.
