As part of a year-long project, each of the 12th Grade students generated and have been living with "a question." On March 29, they will share with us the experience and process of delving into their question in a 5-minute presentation.
Following the presentations, the community will engage interactively with the students regarding their experience in a fair-like atmosphere. You are invited and encouraged to come share in this moment with them, as the interactive component actually depends on you. This is open to students grade 7 and up and adults.
No younger children, please.
BAND AND ORCHESTRA FESTIVAL
On the 21st of March the 7/8 grade orchestra traveled to the Southern California Orchestra and Band Association (SCSBOA) Festival located at Garden Grove High. Middle schools and high schools throughout Orange County traveled to this event to receive feedback and ratings from three highly respected adjudicators from the SCSBOA association. The adjudication included our students performing 3 challenging selections of music along with performing a "sight read" selection (they performed music without having seen the music before) for a fourth adjudicator in a separate location.
Upon completing this 2 hour process, our students received a Superior rating on all of the songs performed, which is the highest to be achieved of the ratings given. The Waldorf School orchestra was one of 4 schools out of 16 to be selected to attend Regionals, as only groups with a Superior rating are invited to attend. Regionals will occur in the month of May.
Our students have been diligent in placing time into practicing and do follow instruction well. They have worked hard and I am truly proud of their accomplishments.

ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN
On March 8, 2012 Grades 4, 6 and 7 went by bus to see the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater perform at Segerstrom Hall. It was the first time most of us had seen the Company perform, and our excitement showed on the bus ride there.
The theater was full of kids from other schools. We had the chance to see the dancers warm up on stage. One of the dancers talked to us about the pieces they would perform.
The dancers were fantastic. Being a dancer myself, I have always been a great believer in dance, and I really appreciated the performance. The Company performed three pieces: "The Night Creature," a solo called "Takademe" (my favorite), and finally the ballet choreographed by Alvin Ailey himself, "Revelations." Ailey's "Revelations" is a beautiful piece in which the people are led out of darkness and depression into the light.
In this moving piece, accompanied by a series of well-known spirituals, I feel the dancers captured what Alvin Ailey dedicated his life to, the beauty and meaning of dance.
