PTA Monthly Meeting

Please join us for the last PTA Meeting of the 2023-24 school year on Wednesday, May 15, 7-8:30pm in the Music Room. It’s been an amazing year, and it is hard to believe we are nearing the end!

Our topic next week will be: Sharing your Thoughts as We Look to the Future.

We hope to include many voices as we begin a series of more intentional strategic planning events focused on the school’s future. Last year, as you may be aware, the school concluded an 18-month process for our re-accreditation by the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) and the NY State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS). We have already been working with the Board in developing our overarching Net Positive goals for all of Hawthorne Valley Association which includes a commitment for Hawthorne Valley to contribute more to the natural world and its inhabitants than it extracts; to harmonize social, economic, and environmental needs; and to formalize and embed these commitments in every aspect of the organization. Part of the feedback from our accreditation team, however,  was a request that we focus on a more school-specific strategic plan. As a key constituent of the school, the voices of our parents are vital in shaping our planning for the future.

Please plan to join us on Wednesday if you are able!
