Dear parents, friends, and neighbors,
For the past three years, faculty, administration, parents and friends of our school have been stretching in order to advance our community approved vision to add upper elementary grades 6, 7 and 8 to current child care through 7th grade programming. Next year, with the graduation of our first 8th grade class, one facet of this vision will have been realized.
Yet, bringing this vision to full fruition is a task still before us. It will require a significant physical transformation of our campus, and its long-term success will also require holistic, coordinated growth of capacities in every area of school life.
The confluence of the school’s need for facility improvements and organizational advancements has presented us with a unique opportunity to reaffirm core values and to choose, with care and intention, the foundations we now lay for our future school community.
Over the last year, teams from the school have worked with a constellation of supporting partners who have brought to us executive level expertise and capacity building services. Of equal importance, they have all also brought a genuine commitment to be guided by the needs of our students and the future they will inherit.
On May 31st, our faculty will be demonstrating how Waldorf pedagogy models in process and expresses in form a reverence for people and place and for nature’s cycles and systems. Christine Mondor from EvolveEA will add insights gathered during their recent conversations with faculty and staff and their assessments of our facility and our community’s understanding of the concept of sustainability. We will be asking you too for your thoughts and reflections.
Please make attending our Community Meeting on the 31st a priority. Childcare is available with pre-registration at 412.441.5792.
We look forward to seeing you there!
