Dear Parents & Guardians,
It was so lovely to see so many of you at the Grade 12 Graduation on Saturday. These touchstone moments really help to affirm our commitments; witnessing the uprightness, poise, confidence, joyfulness, empathy, wisdom and care of our graduating students is something akin to locating the north star at sea. When our children are young, and perhaps this is their first year of Parent & Tot at the Vancouver Waldorf School, graduation can seem so far away. As a parent of two teenagers, who will both be in the High School come September, I can tell you it passes in a heartbeat (but, you’ll figure that out for yourselves).

Year End Picnic – Join us for a fun afternoon in the sun at Princess Park for a potluck celebration with games and activities. Bring your change to purchase mangos by donation. Proceeds will go toward the ECC family who lost their home in the fire. Thank you, Michelle, Elena, Chris & Mary for each taking up parts of holding this annual event.
Lynn Valley Fire Update – On behalf of the family who lost their home and all personal belongings, thank you! Thank you for your generous financial contributions, thank you for the bags and boxes of clothing, toys, books, toiletries, and other items. Our hearts are swelling and all are feeling quite humbled by the gesture. If you wish to still make a contribution, a GoFundMe page has been set up here: https://www.gofundme.com/n85wdm-for-a-family-that-lost-everything. At this point, specific items and financial donations are most needed. If you have clothing to donate, please consider connecting with the Lynn Valley Apartment Fire Donations and Support Group on Facebook to find out how you can help. https://www.facebook.com/groups/252842175484184/
Wishing you a great week ahead.
