Transitions Evening

Parents are invited to go first to the rising grade of their child, where that respective teacher will present a curriculum overview of the upcoming grade. There will be ample time for questions and conversation.

At 6:45, midway through the evening, there will be two different presentations:
One for all rising Grade 1 - 4 parents, with different activities for each lower grade parent to choose from, regardless of grade of their child. These offerings include a math class in Grade 1 classroom, eurythmy in Grade 2 classroom, form drawing in Grade 3 classroom, and painting in Grade 4 classroom. The second presentation occurs at the High School for all rising Grade 5 - 12 parents, where there will be a panel discussion on the values of Waldorf Education throughout the upper grades and college (with questions such as: What makes Waldorf students different?, What are the particular advantages Waldorf graduates have throughout their education?)

Snacks and childcare will be provide. Please contact Cita Riley for details about childcare.

Transitions Week

All Main Lessons in grades 1-8 will be open for parents to attend!

Parents will be able to visit those classes which their children will move into in the upcoming school year. In an effort to minimize the impact of many visitors at a time, sign up sheets will be located in the Grades Office beginning next week. All parent participants must have identified a time slot (or slots) to visit on those sheets by the end of the school day on Friday, January 27th. Participants are asked to be ready to enter the classroom at the outset of Main Lesson (8:30am for Grades 1-5, 8:00am for Grades 6-8) so that they can be greeted along with the students. In order to ensure an uninterrupted experience for students, teacher and guests, no late arrivals will be able to enter the classroom once Main Lesson has begun.
