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.
On Thursday October 8th, Stephen Sagarin visited PVS to give a presentation to our families and staff about Waldorf education in the 21st century. The video below is from the entire thought provoking session.
The Portland Village School provides a developmentally appropriate, Waldorf-inspired, arts-integrated educational program designed to promote the growth and development of the whole child. This school fosters the intellect, nurtures the imagination, and recognizes the emotional life of each child. We strive to create a community that cultivates respect for self and for the broader community. Our aim is to inspire children to live engaged and successful lives, prepared to meet the demands of their world.
Portland Village School recognizes the worth of all individuals and groups. It is the policy of Portland Village School that there will be no discrimination or harassment of individuals or groups on the grounds of age, color, creed, disability, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex or sexual orientation in any educational programs, activities or employment.
