On the morning of February 15, our school hosted Dr. Stuart Brown, on behalf of CommonGround. Dr. Brown, a pioneer in the field of play research, gave an engaging talk about the importance of play in all of our lives. Drawing from his research, he confirmed the importance of so much of the Waldorf curriculum – play, storytelling, movement, and handwork were all elements he cited as being important to the development of a healthy human being. The audience of approximately 60 people included WSP parents, staff, and faculty as well as parents and teachers from other schools. Thanks to all of those who attended and helped with the event - in particular, to Karleen Aghevli, Siobhan Darrow, Cynthia Darvin Vega, Angela Kneppers, Mary Langeron, and Judith Wides.
