On the morning of Dec. 12, lower school students welcomed the holiday season by gathering for a beloved annual outing – the Lower School Skating Social. The event was held at Downtown Ice, a seasonal outdoor rink across the street from San Jose’s Plaza de Cesar Chavez. After the skate party ended, many families wandered over to the plaza to enjoy the festive Christmas in the Park exhibits and decorated Christmas trees, and to get a quick bite to eat at one of the food stalls. Among the displays was the Little Harker School House, where students were able to see what an old-time schoolhouse was like. There was also a tree decorated by Harker’s grade 2 Girl Scout troop. A great time was had by all!
