We hope by now that you have gone to the school’s website to view its refreshed look. If previously you were a frequent website visitor it may “look funny” with the text or graphics not showing correctly. If that is the case, then you may need to clear your browser’s history.

East Village Fair on Saturday    
Next Saturday, September 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Waldorf School of Lexington community will be co-hosting the East Village Fair in conjunction with Follen Community Church, Sacred Heart Church, and Wilson Farm. This event, which happens rain or shine, is the oldest neighborhood fair in America and features old-fashioned games, crafts, food, and fun for young and old inside the horseshoe in front of the school and around our campus. There will be children’s games, an outerwear sale, and refreshments including coffee, baked goods, and other treats provided by members of our school community. The Early Childhood Program will be putting on marionette shows in the afternoon.

This is a great opportunity for children and adults to spend time together as a community. So come eat, play, and enjoy—rain or shine!
 
"The social element is essential; it must be cherished."
-Rudolf Steiner 
Come to "Waldorf 101"    
The PCA presents Waldorf 101 on Thursday, September 27, from 7-9 p.m.  We encourage you to join us in the auditorium for the first of two fun and informative evening sessions for both new and returning parents to answer questions such as: Why do we have a dress code?  What is our media policy?  How do I buy a lunch ticket?  How can I better support my child and the school?  Please click "read more" above for details.
From the Health Office    
Please be aware that there have been a few students who have recently had strep throat.  Symptoms of strep may include any of the following: sore throat, fever, swollen glands, stomachache, and headache. If you think your child may have strep, please keep him or her home from school and arrange for an appointment with your health care provider. A child with strep should remain out of school until no longer contagious. Also, please remember that a child who has a fever should not return to school until they have had no fever for 24 hours.
Welcome All to Cafe 8!    

Join us at Café 8 on Thursday mornings. As many of you know, the eighth grade parents sponsor this breakfast café which, along with Friday's pizza lunch, is an important class fundraiser that subsidizes the expenses of the eighth grade year, including the class trip in June.

The Café is open from 8–10:30 a.m. This year we offer yogurt parfaits, quiche, a sugar and gluten free "raw" pie, "to-go" sandwiches as well as bagels and other homemade treats. Of course, we have fresh brewed coffee and teas, and for the fall season, hot cider. This past week Jane Sheena baked traditional English scones and later this year Pauline Pimlott will offer Irish scones.

Meet your friends, stop and make new friends, or take something homemade with you to go as you head out for the day.

The lecture will be Friday, November 2 at 7 p.m. ($15), and the workshop Saturday, November 3, from 9:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. ($30).

Drop-In Crafts    
With crisp fall air settling in, our drop-in craft sessions will begin this week when we make beautiful handmade items for the Holiday Fair Angel Room. Whether you are a seasoned crafter or a beginner, this will give you an opportunity to learn new skills, share your ideas, and connect with other parents. We will meet in the Chorus Room on Tuesday after drop-off (around 8:30am) until 11 a.m., and Thursday after drop-off until 10 a.m. This week, we are making knitted animals (kittens, bunnies, or ducks) and balls. All materials are provided. Bring your knitting needles if you have your own, but don't worry if you don't as we have extra needles for you to use. Children are welcome.
