Summer Community Market Two More Fridays
We’ve had a great season for our Community Market this summer. Thank you to Joann McDonough for all her hard work coordinating this effort and to the many parents and community volunteers that helped set up, clean up, staff booths, spread the word, and so much more. We are so grateful to have this supportive community.
There are still two more Friday Community Markets scheduled, 8/23 and 8/30, with special performances by Kat Hill (8/23) and Marshunda Smith (8/30).
We’re looking at the possibility of extending the community market. Follow our Facebook posts for the latest information.

On the Blog: Embracing the Goodness in the World For Our Young Children
Read our latest blog post on The Chalkboard.
Now more than ever, as adults, as parents, as educators, we need to embrace the goodness in the world and celebrate the amazing people on this planet! Why? Because our children need it. A child’s connection to a parent is so powerful, it is as though the two are one. Young children can sense profoundly the joy and distress in our inner being.
In our lives, unfortunately, we will continue to live through tragedies, natural disasters, wars, and political turmoil across the world. This piece, written by Waldorf early childhood educator Susan Weber in 2011 following the tragedy in Japan, shows us how we can always create goodness for our young children.

A Pancake and Maple Syrup Day Success. Thank you.
Thank you to everyone who came out for the Pancake Breakfast. It was awesome to see the community come together in celebration of our second successful maple sugaring season and the arrival of spring. We served over 170 people and raised $1,063 dollars!
A big thank you to some of our local grocery stores for their generous donations of goods toward the breakfast, including Market Basket, Stop & Shop, Shaws and Trader Joe’s. When asked to support this event they all responded without hesitation.
We could not have done it without the help of Valley View Farm in Topsfield. The folks there took all of our sap (over 110 gallons collected) and spent many nights in their steamy sugar shack evaporating it down to the delicious sweet syrup that we all enjoyed. If you would like some maple syrup, you can for a limited time buy 16oz for $15 at the school store. Get it while it lasts!
