GRADE 12 FUNDRAISER

Dear Waldorf Community,

 

As a fundraiser for our 12th grade trip, we will donate toys, clothes, and books to Twice Upon A Time (our wondrous second hand store located next to the Company of Angels).  For the week of November 28-December 2, all proceeds will go towards our 12th grade trip.  So please come and shop and help our dream of traveling to Belize come true.  Thank you Nona and Rachel for allowing us the privilege of doing this. 

 

We will be opening the shop at 8:00 and closing it at 3:30 everyday. 
GRADE 4
LAZY W RANCH FIELD TRIP 

On November 9 and 10, the 4th Grade went on a field trip for their California History block.  We went to the Lazy W. Ranch and the San Juan Capistrano Mission.  We built a kiicha (tuli reed hut), made Adobe bricks, ground corn (the adobe was mens work, but most girls like it more than the womens work of grinding corn.)  We made tortillas, worked on looms, made candles, then had a fiesta!  The next day we panned for gold, and dug to find artifacts about the Ahachaman (Native Americans).  We all came home with things like gold, candles, bracelets and not just thing but also we came home loving our first over-night field trip.  It was wonderful!  I loved it, and can't wait for the next one.

Our sincere apologies to Active Culture!

This ad regrettably did not make the ZANY Benefit Program because the Benefit Committee was in the process of losing their minds, which we now know was only temporary.  This great spot is owned by one of our own WSOC families, please check it out!
