As we enter the mid portion of the school year following the December break I want to acknowledge the successful transition of our new teachers this year, and the combined efforts of the returning PVS teachers, along with the New Teacher Inservice Program provided back in August. New teachers across all grades have settled in well, and are establishing positive relationships with their students and PVS families, as well as with their teaching colleagues.

In mid January, Natanya Bowers, Third Grade Teacher, and I attended the Annual Conference of The Alliance for Public Waldorf Education (APWE), held at Rudolf Steiner College in Fair Oaks, CA.  PVS is a member of the alliance, along with fifty other public Waldorf schools across the country, and there is valuable work occurring on many levels being undertaken by alliance schools.
