The Lewis School of Princeton will host its 39th Annual Tree of Light Celebration on Friday, December 7th, at 6:00 p.m. in the schoolyard at 53 Bayard Lane. The event will kick off the school’s 40th anniversary.
Attendees can still expect the same traditions offered every year—delicious gourmet foods and beverages, a Lewis Choir holiday concert, live musical entertainment, a silent auction, and of course, the tree lighting. Tickets are not required for this year’s Tree of Light. All proceeds will benefit The Lewis School’s Annual Fund. Please dress warmly as some activities take place outdoors.
The true meaning of The Lewis School’s Tree of Light has inspired people all over the world. Students are proud to explain to anyone who asks about the Tree that each light shines as symbols of hope and encouragement for learning different persons like themselves. They point out that the Tree is not a Christmas tree; it has no star or decorations. It only has lights that shine for the more than 30 million Americans who are struggling with learning and literacy—those whose “Gifts and Great Promise” have never been recognized; those who have been left behind.
Each year, our Lewis School students, faculty and parents strive to raise greater awareness of those students who have not yet found the educational opportunity they need to realize their potential and fulfill their dreams. The Tree of Light is a celebration to be shared by all who care enough to want to affect change for the better in our world—especially in the lives of children who are our future.
