School Happenings

We like to share what is going on in our classrooms from time to time, so you can share in the joy and wonder of a Waldorf inspired education environment. 
 Today (May 3, 2024), we celebrated our May Faire with songs, ceremonies, and skits. In addition to the festivities, our community came through way more than we could have ever anticipated. Below are photos of flower crown making and parts of the May Faire.

Flower donations for the grades ended up covering TWO picnic tables! We had flowers left over at the end of May Faire for the first time! Our teachers were blown away at the largess of our families.

Finally, the 4th grade danced around the Maypole while Miss Angel sang a traditional May Faire song.
The 7th Grade recently finished their simple machine block, which utilized a combination of engineering, physics, imagination, and a lot of trial and error. The students had a real blast creating and then racing the cars. Who knows, perhaps one of these budding engineers will develop the next big breakthrough in automotive locomotion!
