Week At A Glance – April 8 – 13
Dear VWS Families,
What a great spring weekend it was! The Grade 12 students presented fantastic projects to their captivated audience on Friday and Saturday; an intrepid group of volunteers participated in the gardening work party at the Grade School on Saturday morning; and three teams of faculty and staff competed in a half-marathon on Sunday morning. Thank you to all who came out in support and to those who supported from afar.
Upcoming dates to keep in mind include the Easter long weekend (April 19 – 22), our World Book Day Book Swap (April 23), and the Grade 5 Class Play (April 25 and 26).

Our annual Spring Fair and Open House is this coming Saturday and a wonderful event is being planned. The Grade 6 and 11 students are hosting a Tea House in the Music Room and facilitating craft-making for younger children in the Grade 1 classroom. Our friends from Cascadia will be in the courtyard making a biodynamic garden preparation, Grade 3 parents are hosting a playsilks painting station, the Red Door Store will be open during the Fair, as will our beautiful vendor marketplace. Karen Broom, Admissions Coordinator, will host an Open House in the Grade 5 classroom, which makes the Fair a great introduction to Waldorf education for interested friends and family.
Warm wishes to you all for a lovely week ahead.
