Grandparents and Special Friends Day

October 16, 2020

Thanks to all who joined our first virtual Grandparents and Special Friends Day program via Zoom. It was lovely to see many familiar faces and welcome many for whom this was their first experience of a day in the life of their favorite PRWS student(s). The program was recorded and is ready to share with loved ones!Enjoy a window into our new outdoor classrooms, Waldorf Schools’ unique approach to education, and the creative ways teachers are meeting and engaging the children during these highly unusual times.

Special thanks to all the teachers and children who shared what they’re working on in a class sharing/virtual assembly segment (a rich variety that included book work, a poem, dance, pageant, times tables game, choral, recorder, and strings ensembles, and a chemistry demonstration). Thank you to John Gambrell (PRWS Class of 2002) for sharing alumni reflections, and to Aaron Schmidt and Mary Christenson for a virtual school tour. Kudos to David Levin, Drew Shonka, Julia Ugo, Jordan Brudos, Robin Kottke, and Shawn Lavoie for pulling it all together with skillful film editing, gorgeous photography, tech wizardry, and good humor.
