Lily Dissette

Lilly graduated on June 7 from Newburyport High School, which staged a fantastic car parade around town, winding up with each family’s car pausing at the front door of the high school, just long enough for a masked Mayor Holaday to hand the graduate her diploma. The best part was that so many townspeople came out and cheered for them with noisemakers and balloons and homemade signs.

Lilly will be going to URI for the Flagship Chinese Language Program sponsored in part by US Departments of Defense and State. She’s determined to be a fluent Mandarin speaker by the time she graduates. Her admission into this program was definitely helped along by her membership in the German Honor Society, in turn, owed to her ten years of German while a Waldorf student. She’ll have a dual major but doesn’t know yet what the other subject will be. (photo by Nancy Durkee)

Summer Alumni Party

On July 14, we hosted our inaugural Alumni Family Party. The response was incredible and we had close to a 100 attendees joining us.

We had a wonderful time enjoying good food, good music, and good conversation. We are deeply thankful to all who helped make this event possible.

For those who attended, it was great to see you all. And for those who were unable to attend, we look forward to seeing you next time!

Board Chair Teri Riddle posted some impromptu shots of the event on our community page. You can see them here.

It was a wonderful night for pie

It was a wonderful night for pie

The WCA is sending a big pie shaped, whipped cream covered thank you to everyone who helped make happen the first-ever Waldorf Pi Day Pie Auction on 3.14. Parents, faculty, and alumni all came together to bake pies and put on a great celebration that helped give our school community a night of fun, laughs, and connection. As a result of the night, the WCA is able to fund our community association for all of next year and donate to this year’s annual fund. Jeni Indresano’s Color Splash Designs generously donated 25% of its evening’s proceeds to the annual fund. Cathy and James Kennedy were anointed Pius Maximus status for baking the pie that brought in the highest bid ($150). Congratulations, Kennedys!
