Next faculty/staff lunch is Friday, Oct. 25
As a continuing show of gratitude towards our teachers and the people who work to keep our school in motion, parents of the WCA provide homemade lunch. It is served from 11-3 p.m. in the kitchen for their convenience throughout the day, with leftovers available for take-home. Bon Appetit!

This is our second book group meeting and it takes place at the home of Deann and Megan Reyes-Wangh in Beverly. If you are interested in taking part in our new book club, please join us for a Saturday evening of thoughtful conversation and good company. We will be discussing this month’s read, “White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo. We will also discuss which book to read next month. If you’d like to join us, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are starting our lending library!
Coming soon! Books and Waldorf related publications in the community space. Do you have books or Waldorf related publications that you think would find a good home in our lending library? Please feel free to donate or suggest titles. You can arrange to pick up or send recommendations by contacting us at email@example.com.
Do you want to thank someone in our community for doing something helpful or making some effort that went above and beyond? Here is your chance to do so publicly within our newsletter-receiving community. Send in a short gratitude and our editorial staff will publish some gratitudes each week. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for being thankful!
Our school is powered by all of us. The events and activities that we share together are best organized and implemented by us! Please find your way to an enriching and vibrant volunteer opportunity. Here is a list of activities that need our attention.
- WCA is always looking for volunteers for our faculty lunch and our community space. Write to us at email@example.com and express your interest. We will offer suggestions about how you can be helpful.
- Enchanted Fair Committee needs help to help decorate, organize, seek donations, etc. for the December 14th holiday fair. Contact Heidi Zohn at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help out.
- Outdoor Life Committee (OLC) invites you to three separate Sunday yard work days, October 27, November 17 and December 8th from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. Come on over with your work gloves and a rake. Children wishing to be helpful are welcome.
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!
