Next Friday, May 24th, is our Faculty/Staff In-Service day, so it is a student-free day on campus.  What will we be doing during that time? Our grades and and early childhood teachers and administrative team will be working on plans for next year including a few room changes, supply ordering, calendaring, tasks for summer, site improvement and needs, etc..  Since Memorial Day will be on Monday, May 27th, we hope you will be able to enjoy a 4 day weekend!

Discussion with the Dean - Evening Edition Part 2!

Tuesday, May 21st
6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

Attendance at the first one is definitely NOT a requirement to come to this one.  All are welcome!  We will discuss our own emotions that come up with our children’s behaviors, how to let our children (and ourselves) sit in discomfort to foster resiliency, the meaning underneath behaviors and also practical ideas for our tool boxes.
This event is free, open to our parents/caregivers, and adult-only.  Please bring paper, pen, and your favorite beverage if desired.

   Waldorf Community
Hi there! We're the Burleson Family (Anne, Joel, June and Hart) and we'll be joining the Maple Village community next school year. June will be in the 2nd grade and Hart will be in Kindergarten. We look forward to meeting you all! 
We currently attend Richmond Waldforf School in Richmond, VA, but we'll be moving to Long Beach in July. Speaking of which, we're looking for leads on rental homes. Preferably 3 bedrooms, dog friendly and in a nice area that's walkable to things to do (furnished would be a bonus but not a deal breaker).
We're so excited to explore Long Beach! We've heard so many great things -- we actually have neighbors that lived there for 10 years and just moved back to VA...ahhh The Universe! 
Personally, we don't really know the area, so leads and recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much and can't wait to start this adventure! My email is  annebarronburleson@gmail.com if you'd like to reach out. Thanks again!
Becoming is the third film in a series of short films produced on the occasion of the centenary of Waldorf Education under the direction of the award-winning Californian documentary filmmaker Paul Zehrer, and which provide an insight into the inclusive diversity of Waldorf Education under the most diverse cultural, social, religious and economic conditions around the globe.

No age has a deeper impact on the whole of life than the first years of childhood. "During those first seven years, children develop their bodily foundation for life. They explore and experience the world with their senses and through meeting the other. These early encounters in life have a deep influence and long-lasting effect on the making of their own being,” says Clara Aerts, coordinating member of IASWECE and co-producer of the film, which was shot in the USA, Israel, Japan, India, South Africa, Guatemala, the Czech Republic, Switzerland and Germany. "The experiences that we make possible - or withhold - for our children at this age form the most elementary basis for their further lives and thus ultimately for the future of humanity."
