Nurturing Living Connections, Early Childhood through Grade 12
Please join us on Saturday, July 1st for a field-to-table dinner on our farm in support of Hawthorne Valley’s education, research and cultural programming.
On Saturday, June 10th, at 2 p.m., graduation ceremonies will be held for Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School’s Class of 2017. This year’s commencement speaker is David Orr, Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics and senior adviser to the president of Oberlin College.
Each child’s journey is unique. As Waldorf educators, we strive to impact their journeys in ways that are both powerful and lifelong. How can we best connect children to their natural and wondrous abilities? How can we foster an environment fertile enough to spark their highest sense of purpose? When we allow them to have wonder it’s a gift, and it’s a seed that is planted in them that will grow into adulthood. And, if we can do this, if we can plant the seeds of joy, and love, and gratitude through our teaching and through our support, then we are giving the child a gift for their future.Katie Demers
