It's May Day, and you are cordially invited to join Potomac's celebration! It's going to be a little different this year, but memorable all the same. May Day is a Potomac tradition, and this is the first time in our school's long history that we have not been able to celebrate it on campus. Always ready to embrace a challenge, the Potomac community has pulled together with spirit and enthusiasm to produce a virtual celebration that includes many traditional May Day elements — a show that I'm sure you will enjoy!
This year's program also includes a tribute to longtime Potomac faculty member and past parent John Hebeler, who recently passed away. Mr. Hebeler is remembered for many reasons, including his spirited participation in Potomac's May Day tradition.
Finally, one element that we aren’t able to create anew in this virtual atmosphere (or with proper social distancing!) is the weaving of the May Pole — a well-loved highlight of these annual celebrations. The virtual program includes a wonderful May Pole dance from a past year, 2017, in commemoration of this tradition.
So, sit back, relax, and sing along as we welcome spring and look forward to brighter days ahead!
