May Day Festival May 4th

»Posted by on Apr 27, 2016 in School News | 0 comments

All are welcome as we celebrate the return of Spring with our May Day Festival Wednesday, May 4.

maypoleEarly Childhood and the Grades celebrate at different times, so if you have children in both, you can celebrate with both. This celebration is part of the regular school day, so all grades students are expected to remain with their class until dismissal. Parents and siblings who join our celebration are welcome to bring a blanket and picnic lunch. For parents and other visitors, there will be a few extra tables outside of the pavilion that can be used for lunch. Please bear in mind that if you bring children who are not in the Grades with you to the celebration at the Pavilion, you are responsible for their care and supervision at all times.

Calling All Alumni: Will You Take Our Survey?

»Posted by on Apr 19, 2016 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

 

HomeClassTrip1We are currently conducting a survey to connect with our alumni — to learn what they’re doing, what they’re passionate about, and which of their experiences at Spring Garden Waldorf School have continued to have an impact on their lives over the years. If you did not receive an invitation via email, you can take the survey here.

Though we do collect personal data such as addresses and email addresses, this information will be used for internal purposes only and will be separated from the data prior to data analysis. Your answers to survey questions will be analyzed to identify trends, and the information you provide will allow us to be reflective about our work as well as to speak honestly and accurately to prospective families and other members of the Waldorf community about how our students fare in high school and beyond.

The survey has options for alumni who are 18 years or older, alumni who are under 18, and parents of alumni. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
The survey will remain open through early June. We’re grateful to those alumni who have responded already, and we look forward to hearing from more of you!
