Waldorf Community Association
All parents, teachers and friends of Waldorf School at Moraine Farm are members of the Waldorf Community Association (WCA). We gather to support our school community in a multitude of ways, and host four meetings during the school year that are open to all members.
We welcome you to come and share your joys, concerns and ideas about the school and its events. These meetings are a great way to get to know other community members, to work on projects or simply chat and catch up.
The Waldorf Community Association also hosts community-wide events such as our esteemed Adult Speaker Series, public service talks (like “Internet Safety”), used book sales, recycling events, summer picnic dinner meet-ups and our annual Learning Conference. These events enrich our community and are also wonderful ways to connect with other area Waldorf schools, as well as people across the North Shore.
Please check our calendar for upcoming meetings and events.

Waldorf Enchanted Fair, December 8, 10am – 4pm
On Saturday, December 8, the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm will be transformed into the Waldorf Enchanted Fair. This event offers a magical holiday experience for the whole family with handcrafted gifts and toys, adult and children’s activities, live music, puppet shows, and food.
With this annual fair, the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm has cultivated a reputation for bringing enchantment to children of all ages. Families can “Slay the Dragon” with bows and arrows; decorate wreaths; watch a puppet show; make wands, ornaments, and lanterns; have their faces painted; make a beeswax candle; and much more.
A fair favorite is the Wee Folk Shoppe. This tiny shop, just big enough for small children to enter, allows little ones to pick out a special gift and have it wrapped by a Wee Folk Elf. Another favorite is the Pocket Lady and Pocket Gnome, who stroll through the halls with treasures hidden in their many pockets. Children delight in finding out what prize they have chosen.
The Waldorf Cafe & Bakery will be selling a large selection of homemade baked goods, sandwiches, apple cider and coffee.
The $5 entry fee includes 5 tickets that can be used towards any of our activities. Holiday gift making activities range from 2 to 10 tickets.
To enjoy an adult-only shopping experience, come to the school for “Enchanted Eve” on Friday night, December 7th from 6pm to 9pm. In addition to great shopping, there will also be hors d’oeuvres and wine served.
The Waldorf Enchanted Fair is a parent-volunteer, community-driven event that raises funds to support the many educational programs and goals at the school. These funds help make tuition assistance programs possible. They provide compensation increases for our dedicated teachers, and help us to care for our buildings and grounds. This fair comes together through the many parent volunteers that donate their time, talent and money towards the production of this fair. The school recognizes and thanks them for their immeasurable contributions.
