Halloween in the Children's Garden

Halloween 2014

A special note for WSB Children's Garden families.

IN SCHOOL
During the week leading up to Halloween, each class will celebrate in their own way. The Children’s Garden faculty asks that your child not bring costumes to school.
If you are organizing a celebration with costumes after school, please be respectful of the choices other families may make by not discussing your plans during school time.

WSB Youth Ambassador of American Diabetes Association

Julia Macdonald

Last week’s Newsbytes contained a link to The Adaptable Mind, a beautifully produced 11 minute video connecting the characteristics of Curiosity, Creativity, Initiative, Empathy, and Multi-Disciplinary Thinking with the ability of humans to flourish and contribute to the world. Integrated in all aspects of a Waldorf education, it is easy to see these characteristics in our students.

Camping and Canoeing on the Pocomok

WSB 6th Grade Trip

The sixth and seventh grades went on a camping trip to the Pocomoke River setting up base camp at Shad Landing.  On Wednesday, May 27th, after unpacking our tents, we canoed up Corkers Creek.  Corkers Creek is a small tributary that flows into the Pocomoke River.  It took us about half the canoe trip to actually get the paddling down so we moved effectively along.  On Thursday, May 28th, we got to canoe up the Pocomoke River to Nassawango Creek.
