A Joyful Beginning

A rousing welcome for new families

A rousing welcome for new families

Dear Friends,

Welcome back! Whether you are new to the Waldorf School this year or returning, we are very excited to have you and your children as a part of our school community.

We began the school year with a special tradition—the annual School Warming—an evening of welcoming, camaraderie, and singing led by WSL’s new Chorus Teacher, Tudor Bota. There is nothing like inaugurating the new school year in four-part harmony!

Together we are re-forming a community of parents and educators who have one main goal and purpose: to give the children in our care the best and most meaningful education we can provide.

As I listened to Jeanette Voss, fourth grade Class Teacher and Chair of the College of Teachers, characterize the values of Waldorf education, I was once again reminded of the impressive skill, energy, and dedication that our faculty contribute every day to challenge and stimulate our students in creative ways.

Woodworking teacher Andy Freeburg carefully stripped this sign down to bare wood and, one by one, applied twelve new coats of varnish. Thank you, Andy!

Over the summer our classrooms, facilities, and campus were renovated and renewed so that our school can once shine brightly with the promise of new beginnings, new friends, and new experiences. It is a great privilege for us to care for and educate your children. Thank you for being a part of our Waldorf School community!

In the words of Howard Gardner, we are striving for “beauty, truth, and goodness” in our work here together at WSL, and we invite you all to come along on this journey.

With best wishes for the school year,
Robert
