Children’s Winter Spiral

Winter is dark,
Yet each tiny spark
Brightens the way…

On Wednesday, December 5, during the school day, children in the grade school and early childhood classes will walk the Winter Spiral of Light, continuing a longtime tradition in Waldorf schools around the world. Early-childhood students will walk at 3:30 p.m. in the Buttercup Room, and parents are invited to attend. Parents who attend should arrive no later than 3:20. For your children’s safety, it’s important that they wear well-fitting shoes, have long hair tied back, and avoid flowing skirts or loose sleeves.

Introduction to First Grade
Feb 13 @ 8:15 am – 10:30 am
‘Tis the season to begin welcoming six-year-old children—and their parents—into Ashwood’s next first grade and into our community. In that spirit, we extend our warmest welcome both to parents of Ashwood kindergartners as well as the parents of first-grade-ready children throughout the Midcoast, from Waldoboro to Montville and beyond to attend our Introduction to First Grade. The morning will begin with a visit to the current First Grade, where visitors will be able to see the students and their teacher in action. Following the classroom visit, School Director, Jody Spanglet will give a hands-on demonstration lesson. The morning will conclude with a Q&A session. So, bring your questions! Takes place at Ashwood Waldorf School, 180 Park Street, Rockport. Pre-registration required. Free event. All are welcome!
