Waldorf Community Association update week of Feb. 24

The WCA presents our Lending Library at school! In the common area, you will see a new shelf (installed by our own Jack Hogan and Ken Katz) below the existing one, that is filling up fast with Waldorf inspired books, publications, and articles. There is a sign out binder available so that adults may check out any of the reading materials and return when you are finished. Thanks to all who have donated items for the library and we welcome suggestions for additions to our collection. We ask that our borrowers return the materials in a timely manner so that others may enjoy the information available. Two-week check-outs are suggested.

The Pie Auction is coming up. If you would like to help us with the planning and executing of the evenings events please let us know with a simple email to wca@waldorfmoraine.org 

Contribute to Faculty & Staff Lunch
Thursday, February 27 • 11 AM – 3 PM
Every month, members of the WCA share in the joy of preparing and serving a warm lunch for our beloved faculty and staff. Last month was a Chinese New Year’s themed feast, and this month is Mediterranean!

It’s not too late to join in on the fun. Each participant picks a recipe to prepare and drops it off in the downstairs kitchen on the morning of the meal. If you would like to make something please contact Jessica Brand Alves at brand.jessica@gmail.com.

More Upcoming Events

Next WCA General Meeting
Thursday, March 12, 8:15 am- 10:00 am in the Trayes Room
This is your association. Our activities should reflect you. Come hear what we’re working on and be part of the planning. Your help is welcome as we plan our second annual Pi Day Pie Auction fundraiser, our next family Freecycle, movie night, cafe, playgroups, CPR class and more. 

Explorations
We have tentative date set for weekend classes in this valuable course (September to March). Learn about the underpinning of Waldorf and Anthroposophy. Please go online to pre register at www.centerforanthroposophy.org If you have questions contact wca. 

Bring back the cafe!
We have a few parents interested in reviving our morning tea and social time! If you would like to bake or help set up or help plan please contact wca.

Babysitter Share Now Available
A new community babysitter share program is now underway enabling our families to utilize children tenders already vetted by other Waldorf families. Do you have a babysitter that would be available for other families to use? Would your babysitter agree to having you share his or her name with other parents in our community? If so, or you are in need of a sitter, please send an email to wca@waldorfmoraine.org.

SAVE THE DATES!

Pi Day Pie Auction – Saturday, March 14, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm.
It’s going to be a Wonderful Night For Pie! Save the important date, secure the babysitter, and join us for an adult evening filled with music, laughs, appetizers/wine, and loads of pie. The signup list for baking pies will be available at the end of February. For more information, contact us at wca@waldorfmoraine.org.

CPR/First Aid Class – April 4, 10:00 am – 11:30 (CPR) and 11:30 – 1:00 (first aid)
Certification for these handy skills will be offered to parents interested in knowing the basics of administering CPR and other first aid techniques.

Last, but not least, we share the verse we speak at each meeting…

“A healthy social life is found only when, in the mirror of each soul, the whole community finds its reflection, and when, in the whole community, the virtue of each one is living.”

– Rudolf Steiner
