Starting Soon: Community Interviews

December 13th, 2021 | Announcements

As we shared last week, after the start of the New Year, we will be conducting a series of community interviews to inform our leadership search. Those who will be interviewed include past and present parents, board members, faculty members, staff members, and friends of our school. Interviews will be conducted by Lisa Mahar, who worked as the Administrator at the Monadnock Waldorf School for over 25 years and now supports many schools in the areas of governance, planning, and board work, including ours.

Through these interviews we hope to gain deeper insight into school character, school culture, future priorities, areas of strength, and opportunities for growth. Gaining a deeper understanding from the community on these important topics will support and inform our work moving forward. We value the thoughts of all of our community members, and hope that if you are contacted for an interview you will be willing to share. Thank you in advance for your participation!

Spiral of Light: A Moment of Reverence and Wonder

December 6th, 2021 | Announcements

This past weekend our young students and their families had a chance to participate in one of our school’s most beautiful traditions: the Spiral of Light. In early December, as a celebration of the beginning of the winter season, the spiral of light represents the reverent inward light and hope during the darkest time of the year. Before the children arrive, the faculty and staff prepare the spiral with evergreen boughs. Apples are cored and into each one is placed a candle. At the center of the spiral is a single candle and, at times, an angel. During the evening, quiet music is played, creating an inward mood as each participant walks the spiral, carrying their own candle. Upon reaching the center, each one lights their candle, turns and places it along the spiral as they retrace their steps out. When all have completed this journey, the form of the spiral is illuminated by the candles and a moment is taken to silently observe what has been created. The candles are left burning while the children leave reverently.

The Spiral of Light is a simple celebration of the wonder of a light in a time of darkness. It is a recognition of each child’s unique individuality, done at this time of year in particular because this is the time when our individual light is deep within, waiting to be kindled. The light of summer has gone away for us, just as it has for the plants and animals. Just as summer’s light and fall’s harvest has left roots, seeds and bulbs lying rich with potential in the earth, so too are our individual lights lying within. Together, as human beings, we also prepare for this time of deep mid-winter, and as we find our way in this darkest of seasons, we continue to house and nurture our inner light and keep it aflame. Further, it is a celebration of each person finding their inner light and then sharing it with the whole group. By following the spiral we experience movement through the darkness toward the inner light. The light we then carry outwards helps illuminate our way and when we leave it in just the right spot, it lights the way for others.

Natalie Therese is a handmade and eco-friendly handbag and accessories business founded by WSMF mom, Natalie DiBello. You can shop a collection of Natalie Therese cork handbags, pouches, wallets and earrings online.
Natalie has always had a passion for creating and sewing. What started as a hobby has blossomed into Natalie Therese, a business that allows her to share her creations with all of you. Natalie loves organization and clean designs. Everything she produces is simple, elegant and functional. Natalie is also foolish enough to think a product can be all of those things and eco-friendly to boot! That’s why she designs with cork fabric. Cork is a wondrous, natural fiber. It’s sustainably harvested from the bark of the cork oak tree in Portugal and transformed into all her wonderful works in her studio in Massachusetts. Cork is lightweight, waterproof, stain-resistant and anti-microbial. Mother Nature is a brilliant designer in her own right!
Did you know Natalie makes other items just for the Enchanted Caravan?  Check out her crayon rollspencil casestreasure poucheswet bagsorganic cotton face masks and reusable cutlery pouches.

During store Pop-Ups you can also donate to International Rescue Committee to support the Syrup for Syria fundraiser. This fundraiser was brought to our community by the Belleville-Richane Family last year and we are excited to have the opportunity to support this worthy cause again this year. Donations provide critical aid for Syrians displaced by war. As a thank you for your donation, you will receive a small bottle (1.7 oz) of homemade maple syrup. This makes a great stocking stuffer, and an even better pancake topper! You can learn more about the International Rescue Committee’s work in Syria here: www.rescue.org/country/syria. Suggested donation: $10.

On Tuesday November 30th our community came together in support of the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm mission. Alumni, parents, faculty, staff, grandparents, friends, and even strangers took time to show their appreciation for the work we do here every day by making donations from as far away as Mexico. At the end of the day, our fundraising efforts had exceeded the day’s goal of $8,000. This simply could not have been done without the strength and charity of our community. For this, and so much more, we thank you! To learn more about how gifts to the Annual Fund make an impact on the daily lives of our students, visit https://waldorfmoraine.org/annual-fund/.

Tonight is the last day of Hanukkah, the 8 day celebration of light in Jewish culture. To those members of our community who have been celebrating over the past days, we hope your time was filled with joy.

There was certainly joy here at school during this Hanukkah period as some of our students had the chance to practice their math skills while they learned a classic Hanukkah game– Dreidel!
