Harvest Moon

The full moon that occurs during autumn equinox, when the Earth's equator most closely lines up with the sun's center, is noticeably brighter and rises earlier than a typical full moon. Appearing some time in September or October, this harvest moon can appear almost orange (usually when it's closest to the horizon), a bit like a giant pumpkin in the sky—very seasonally appropriate! This bright, early moonlight has long been helpful to farmers as they harvest summer crops, hence the name.

"And all at once, summer collapsed into fall" – Oscar Wilde

Fall, harvest, autumn... words that whisper magic's on the way, from gorgeous foliage to 🎃.


Happy fall! 🍂

Also, consider sending in a note of gratitude to someone on staff. We have been short-staffed all year and everyone has been pulling double and sometimes triple duties. We're exhausted. It lifts our spirits to get a card or token of appreciation from you letting us know how our efforts have made you fall in love with our school!



Thank you for supporting us!
