Learn how to use the Earth Oven Nov. 7
Thank you to everyone who has been helping construct our Earth oven over the last few weeks. If you are interested in using the oven for your child’s class or other school activity, or just want to know how it works, we will be holding a workshop on Nov. 7 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Anyone who will want to use the oven will need to go through this training. Please let us know if you are interested and if you need childcare that evening. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next WCA general meeting Nov. 14
The next WCA meeting will be held on the morning of Thursday, Nov. 14, from 8:15 to 10 a.m. in the Trayes Room. All are welcome to come hear updates about school programs, lend ideas, or voice a concern. If there is a topic you would like covered, please email Linda Wrinn at email@example.com.
Fall Clothing Swap Mon. Nov. 18 – Fri. Nov 22
Back by popular demand, it’s the fall/winter clothing swap! For one week you can donate your gently used children’s cold weather clothes and shoes as well as maternity clothes to our swap. You can choose any items of clothing in our swap that suit you. You do not need to bring clothes to take clothes. The swap will take place in the Great Hall. Drop off size infant through 14-16 youth, and maternity clothes (any size and season) that are in good enough condition that you yourself would accept it used. Whatever doesn’t find a home by the end of the day on Friday will be donated to Beverly Bootstraps, our community partner, a non-profit year-round service that connects families to the resources they need to achieve self-sufficiency. Thank you for your support!
Understand Waldorf better through the new “Explorations” class
For parents who have been looking to know more about the philosophy behind Waldorf education, here is an opportunity to learn more about anthroposophy and the insights of Rudolph Steiner. Explorations, formerly known as Foundation Studies, is a new arts-based program for adults wishing to explore the wide terrain of anthroposophical endeavors, including the foundational principles of Waldorf education. It has been designed to be held in Waldorf communities across the continent and will feature a new three-tiered format comprised of, intensive weekend workshops with an emphasis on the arts, bi-monthly seminars to study anthroposophy, and monthly Zoom webinars called “Windows on Waldorf”. For more information or to register, visit the center for anthroposophy at www.centerforanthroposophy.org and click on the “Explorations” tab. Express your interest by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
