Welcome new and returning families to the 2019-2020 school year. We are off to a great start! In preparation for this school year, Orchard faculty and staff have worked in unity with diligence to develop a school-wide behavior plan. Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe are the norms we have agreed to hold throughout the entire school. Class Teachers and Specialty Teachers are focusing on these "3 B's" with their classes as they teach students how these norms look in each classroom.
This school year we are celebrating both Golden Valley's 20th year and Waldorf Education's 100th year. Watch for upcoming dates to celebrate these two milestones. In addition, watch for Parent Circle events and our yearly celebrations. Community members are invited to participate in the Diversity Committee which will begin Tuesday, September 17th at 1:30 pm. We also have several Parent Education Evenings planned to help parents learn more about Waldorf Education.
