 Latvian School Calendar and Events:

Latvian School.  Our school gives children, and their parents, the opportunity to connect with their Latvian roots.   We work hard to give all children a sense of their history and cultural traditions through dance, song and Latvian celebrations.    Classes are in Latvian and in English.    Children who have learned to speak Latvian at home continue to develop their language skills by reading and writing in Latvian.    Language learners acquire new vocabulary in classes that teach basic conversation as well as history and cultural traditions.

There are many special events to look forward to.   These include a skerslu gajiens (treasure hunt), celebrating Martini (an ancient tradition similar to Halloween), baking piparkukas (spice cookies) before Christmas, and using onion skins and spring flowers to color Easter eggs.    There is an annual ski trip to the Catskill Mountains.

Please check our calendar for dates (below).    School is held on some Saturdays, some Sundays,  to accommodate busy family schedules.    If you can not make a regular commitment to Latvian School but still want to connect with the Latvian community, we welcome you to our special events.       Contact Silvija at LatvianSchool@LatvianLuthChurchPhila.org if you have any questions or if you would like to join us!
