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!

Why We Give: It’s Personal
This year on Giving Tuesday, I invite you to join me and my family in giving to the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm Fund.
When Paul and I returned with Alexander (then five) and Aylin (three) from our nine-year sailing circumnavigation of the globe, we looked for a school that would mirror the experiences to which they had been exposed during our life away. We sought an environment that would continue to nurture their innate curiosity, let them take risks, and allow them to learn through experiencing the world around them. We wanted a place where they would feel understood, heard, loved, respected, and supported. Finding and then joining this Waldorf community was a perfect fit.

Grandparents and Special Friends Day
Grandparents and Special Friends Day was Tuesday Nov 20th and we want to thank all those who attended and helped organize such a wonderful event! The children absolutely love this day getting to share their main lesson blocks in the grades and bread making in kindergarten with their special friends. It was also a day to meet with alumni who shared their experiences of how a Waldorf education framed their adolescence into adulthood. What a great way to kick off the Thanksgiving break by bringing all of these special community members together. Very grateful!
