Save the date for Ashwood Waldorf School’s eighth-grade graduation! The Class of 2015, along with their dedicated teacher, Amy Watson, look forward to seeing you at the Strom Auditorium at Camden Hills Regional High School on Saturday, June 6, at 1:00 p.m.
Graduation is the culminating moment of each student’s time at Ashwood. It is the students’ last chance to share their talents with our school community and for our community to honor their growth and achievements.
At Ashwood, graduation is seen as a significant moment for the whole community: for the younger children who are inspired by the eighth graders and who look forward to their own graduation; for the teachers who have all had a hand in their education; for the parents of children in other grades who have watched and helped the eighth graders grow through the years.
Our hope is that all parents and friends of Ashwood will also join us. It truly is a wonderful event!
Ashwood Grads, 2015
Ashwood Waldorf School’s annual All Hallows’ Eve Walk will be on Friday, October 31 from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. at Merryspring Nature Center, Conway Road, Camden.

Creature a Month – Surprise yourself, or someone you love, with 12 magical monthly gifts. Once a month for a year, you will receive a felted item in the mail, handmade by the talented and creative Early Childhood teacher Liz Ferrero. If you’ve seen LIz’s remarkable fairy houses and charming little gnomes and critters, you know how incredible her work is, and how much children and adults love it. You choose the dates, the theme, and the recipient, and Liz will do the rest. All items will be handmade and felted, with the potential for some embroidered accents and other varying details depending on the chosen theme.

Everybody loves Toki!
Wearable Toki Art and Birthday Calendar – Everyone loves TokiArt, and you’ll especially love wearing it with these two 100 percent cotton white t-shirts, each featuring one of Maine artist and Waldorf teacher Toki Oshima’s lovely, folksy drawings. You’ll get “The Neighbor’s Tractor” (adult small), featuring a fabulous red vintage machine drawn in Toki’s trademark style, and “Afternoon Visit” (adult medium), featuring a sweet image of a cow with a blackbird perched on its head. Also,
I am impressed by their capacity to take on such a challenge and see it through to completion. These young people have experienced what I like to think of as an initiation process, requiring each of them to gain a deeper understanding of time management, accountability and follow through. The responsibility and maturity required to complete these projects, to me, illustrates their ability to achieve success in life. My hope for this class, is that they will use this ability to serve humanity in a positive and meaningful way.
Finally, a school fundraiser that costs you nothing… and you don’t have to bake either!
The Grocery Gift Card Fundraiser is as easy as doing the grocery shopping. Just stop by the school office anytime and purchase a gift card. Then, the next time you are at the checkout counter at any Hannaford’s or Shaw’s, just whip out the card and use it to pay for your groceries.
Your grocery gift card is just like cash. Dollar for dollar, what you pay for your gift card pays for your groceries (or dog food or shampoo or movie rental or…). There are no hidden fees.
And here’s the best part: Ashwood will earn approximately 5% on the weekly grocery expenditures of everyone who participates.
This fundraiser has the potential to be a huge success, earning thousands of dollars for our tuition assistance fund.
Gift cards will be sold in the school office in denominations of $50 and $100. Pay for them with cash or check. Buy as many as you like. There’s no expiration date. Come on into the office and get your gift cards, and get shopping today!
