During our story time we shared about the Sacred Circle and how the land was undisturbed during construction. It’s purpose is to reconnect us to Mother Earth. The stones represent the Medicine Wheel and were placed in the four directions.
The story behind the carving in the middle was created to remember the hawk that flies over the school. Then the man below the hawk whose fingers are held together as he waits for the children, to gather everyone together.
The rest of the story and details will be discussed during elementary’s summer/fall culture classes.
