Dr. Angel Castillo, minister of education for Imbabura province in Ecuador, visited campus last Friday to learn more about incorporating Waldorf methods into Ecuadorian education practices. In between touring various classes, Dr. Castillo and his companions met with parents and staff to get a better feel for the school and its community. You can read more about Dr. Castillo's visit to Princeton here, and more about his visit to our neighbors in Kimberton here.
During recess on Dec. 8th, two Fourth Grade explorers were seen peering into the holes in the pear tree. They discovered where the gnomes can slide down, and even bathe in a hole filled with water from recent rains. The pair then looked for holes in ALL of the trees, in an effort to locate all of the gnome homes. Keep an eye out for these elusive little workers!
This weekend's Winter Spiral provided the scent of fresh pine, gentle music, and the eventual conquering of darkness for the Kindergartners, First Graders, Second Graders and those in our community wishing to participate. The richness of the experience will certainly carry us through the darkness of the season.
