Waldorf 100 Celebration – On September 19th, we will join global celebrations of 100 years of Waldorf education by hosting a simple gathering during school hours at the Grade School. Because we are staying at the VWS, rather than heading to Squamish for a joint celebration with the other Sea-to-Sky schools, there will be no changes to the drop-off, pick-up, and the bus schedule that day. Complete information about the celebration will be shared later this week.

Lost & Found – As we move toward the season change, please take a moment to label your children’s belongings as this is the time of year when jackets and raincoats are often left behind. Found items at the Grade School will be placed in the Lost & Found, near the Practical Arts room.

Have a wonderful week.
