CWS celebrated 100 years of Waldorf education on Thursday, September 19.
Early Childhood classes began the celebration with deliveries of bread to the grades. The “kindergarten bread” prompted nostalgic conversations in several of the grade school classrooms as students recalled their own kindergarten days.
The Grade School gathered after snack time to hear the story of the founding of the first Waldorf school 100 years ago, and the children sang together and then broke into mixed age groups for a stone painting project. Beekeeper Diego of Elysium Honey did honey tastings with 6 different types of honey from his hives on the East Coast of the United States and in Italy.
After lunch and a honey-nut snack made by local bakery – and school parent – Sidney from Moon Maiden’s Delights, the entire grade school set off to Pen Park with gloves, bags, and pickers. After a trash clean up walk and enjoying the trails, the students returned, tired and hot, to school for dismissal.
Thanks to the many parents who pitched in to bring about the Waldorf100 Celebration at CWS, and to the teachers and staff who pulled together to make our contribution to the international event!
