EAPA Christmas Tree Lighting

First page of the PDF file: ChristmasTreeLighting2023

The Christmas Tree Lighting is an All-School event to kick off the holiday season and has become a beloved EA tradition. It will be held this year on Friday, December 1 from 4-6 p.m.  Please join us in front of the Athletic Center from 4-5:45 p.m. for comfort foods, hot chocolate, craft activities, and games. Back this year will be cookies from our Middle School Cookie Contest. Santa will visit us on the Athletic Center Porch - Children will be able to speak with Santa and have their photos taken with Santa.  In the Chapel, musical performances will be provided by our students and piped out onto the Campus Green for all to enjoy.  The Campus Green will be lined with luminary bags decorated by our Lower Schoolers. It will truly be a festive and magical event. At 5:45 p.m., follow the Drum Line to our live tree, where carols will be sung, a blessing will be given, and the tree will be lit for all to enjoy.  

We welcome students from the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools to perform their musical instruments in the chapel that evening.

To support our ACLAMO partners, we will be collecting items for the Lower School Warming Tree at the event. Look for a drop off box near the entrance to leave your donations of new hats, gloves/mittens, adult and youth sized socks. Thank you for helping us spread the magic of the season to others as we enjoy our special EA tradition. 

It is time to fill the Class of 1944 Chapel with beautiful poinsettias for the Christmas Season!
