The Schoolhouse Performs First Nation Canadian Folk Tales South Burlington Vermont

The Schoolhouse invites the community to join us in celebrating the Native Canadian culture of our neighbors in a public performance of folk tales, original poetry and dance.

Every year, students at this unique elementary school in South Burlington put together a performance that reflects the year's cultural theme. This year, all 48 students, as well as teachers and parents, come together to present Crow Brings the Daylight: An Inuit Myth retold by S.E. Schlosser and adapted by local parent Maggie Hall; A Native American Cinderella based on a story retold by Elaine L. Lindy; and The Long Winter based on a story retold by Elaine L. Lindy, adapted by Lindsay Parker. Parent Melissa Murray of Hinesburg directs.

The productions reflect The Schoolhouse's values and raison d'etre: the creation and work of a multi-age, multi-cultural alternative learning community. Created in a parent-teacher cooperative, the Schoolhouse inspires and nurtures children's natural love of learning while giving them a foundation for leadership, critical thinking, and a respect for the environment and our larger community.

Located on 28 acres of fields and wetlands in the middle of South Burlington, students come from all over the greater Burlington area.

If you think that's a mouthful, wait until you hear our kids!
