Week At A Glance January 20 – 25

Dear Community,

This past weekend, we had the privilege of welcoming many inquisitive families to our Grade School and Early Childhood Centre for the first of our Open Houses in 2020. In spite of the soggy weather, the turn out was good and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. I’d like to extend my gratitude to all the volunteers who stepped forward to help make the event possible, especially our young 3rd graders who helped with demonstrations – I heard from guests that their presence and enthusiasm was infectious. On Tuesday night, we do it all again, but this time at the High School! If you are curious about what High School looks like in a Waldorf School, please come!
