Hay, we enjoyed our April's Fools Day!
The Senior class played several well-orchestrated "delightful" pranks on their friends and teachers including:  filling Meadows Hall with Hay and lining the wall with a "We Love Eurythmy" sign made entirely of post-its (pictured above).  It was great fun and no one was injured.

Summer Camp


Learn about Steve and Kate's Camp

April 7 from 6pm - 8pm

Steve and Kate's Camp is excited to be opening at the Waldorf School of Orange County this summer and are sending both the Costa Mesa Community Director and the Summer Director to field questions for families of our school about their camp program.  Feel free to bring the whole family to meet them, they will provide food and refreshments.  Please RSVP if you can at  


May Faire


May Faire is May 3
May Faire is the first Saturday after we return from Spring Recess, so we need to talk about it even though we are mere days into April!

The May Faire Committee is hard at work creating a beautiful day that will live in our children's memories. They wanted to let you know the following:

* Admission for Parents is FREE this year.  Closer to event day, your room reps will have for you 2 FREE wristbands per family.  You may purchase additional wristbands for guest during pre-May Faire tickets sales or at the event.

* The new normal is NO PARKING in the BLUFFS.  You may park at Fairview Park and walk in.

* To be consistent with our policy for class plays and performances, Photography and Videotaping during the May Pole Dance Ceremony will only be done by each class' designated photographer who will be wearing a lanyard badge to allow them to stand in the photographic zone.  To everyone else, please enjoy the event and do not stand in the photographer's zone.  Each class will be responsible for making the photos available.  We are sure you can appreciate reverent intention of the performances, as well as the ability to watch the dancing without having a sea of bodies holding cameras standing in front of you, or standing directly behind the dancing (which means the photographers are IN everyone's pictures). This is for the Procession of Students arriving on the field/ Class Performances / May Pole Dancing / On-Stage Musicians only.  Once the performances are over, you may take your own snapshots.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

* The bounty of flowers is only possible through the community's effort in obtaining flower donations.  Please do not wait until we return from Spring Recess to coordinate your flower donations.  Use the letter attached to visit your local grocery store floral department, floral shop, Home Depot, any place that sells flowers.  Ask if they can donate flowers that are near their expiration date.  Each family is asked to bring in two buckets of flowers. Drop off will be May 6 - 7.  We can also take greens and cuttings from your home gardens with long stems.  Thank you!

Save the Date for Daniel & Kate!

Daniel Pitts our WSOC Eurythmy Pianist and Katie his wife a former WSOC Choir teacher were accepted this year into AIMS (American Institute of Musical Studies), an American summer opera and accompanist coaching program in Graz, Austria. It's one of the more prestigious American programs, having been around for 44 years now, and the faculty comes from all over the world. The intensive morning-to-night program includes lessons, coaching, masterclasses, aria recitals with orchestra, German language classes, and much more. 


They will be doing some benefit recitals from south Orange County to Santa Barbara to raise funds to cover costs. They're planning on a 45-minute recital or so, lots of arias and some Lieder, and we'd talk a bit about AIMS, and ask for support.


Here are the dates for their upcoming recitals:


Saturday Mar. 29, 2:00 pm at Fields Pianos in Santa Ana

Saturday April 19, 2:00 pm at Fields Pianos in Santa Ana

810 E Dyer Rd, Santa Ana, CA 92705; (714) 662-2038
