Grand Opening of new high school campus

End of Week Update 9/5/14

September 06, 2014 in Inside SWS

I always love the start of the new school year, and this time around it has been especially wonderful and rewarding!

Our new high school was officially opened last week Thursday, with a happy crowd in attendance – upward of 250 people enjoyed each other’s company, fabulous weather, a short program including our high school drummers, the ceremonial ribbon cutting and the opportunity to tour this truly beautiful facility. You may like to watch this 4 minute video of a Parks Department representative welcoming SWS to Magnuson Park.  We also enjoyed a bit of newspaper coverage: Seattle Waldorf School to celebrate high-school campus opening and Off the treadmill?

At the grade school the jump ropes were twirling vigorously as children fell into their routines with ease. We enjoyed a lovely Rose Ceremony outside, where our class teachers captivated the group with images of the year ahead. Next week we will welcome the kindergartners at both Briar Rose and Kinderhaus, as well as our littlest ones in Parent and Tot. The year will be in full swing then!

I would like to encourage all of you to take advantage of two upcoming parent events, one open to all SWS parents and the other specifically for high school parents.

 Back to School Dinner   •  Monday, September 15, 6:30 pm, grade school campus
All parents are most welcome to join us for a delicious dinner hosted by the Parent Association.  Welcome our new families, reconnect with friends, meet members of our board, and learn about ways to get involved at the school.  RSVP here.
 
High School “Back to School” Night   •  Tuesday, September 23, 6:30 pm, high school campus
“Back to School” Night is a fun and informative experience for parents of our high school students. You will be given a personalized class schedule and will experience a day in the life of your high school student! We encourage ALL high school parents to come and enjoy this special evening.

 

Wishing you a wonderful, sunny weekend!
