Today we had our Easter Festival here at Lakota Waldorf School! The children have made their baskets all week in preparation for this day. The day's activities included: Easter Egg Hunt, an Easter Story, the children all received the baskets they made during the week, and we followed with a nice meal for all. We hope everyone has a nice Easter weekend!
We just want everyone to know that our website is back up! We are working on updating all the information to keep everything current. Thank you for your patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
Throughout the year our teachers go through Waldorf Training with either instructors or mentors from other Waldorf Schools. We were pleased to have Lin Welsh here this week to mentor our teachers and staff. We wish her a safe journey home, and hope to see her soon! Thank you for making the trip!
During the first days of spring we decided to start planning our garden. With help from Rose Fraser (Oyate Teca Project - Kyle, SD), we were able to start some of the plants early with her tips. We hope to have a large garden this year, so we will be starting soon. The children will help along the way, and we can tell they are excited to experience something new for most of them. Warm weather help us grow!...
In Waldorf teaching, the artistic aspects are very fundamental. Water Painting, Drawing, and even our Play Dough, is made of all natural ingredients. The crayons are made from beeswax, the water paints are made from natural ingredients such as plants. Waldorf teachings say; "with head, hand, and heart."
We here at Lakota Waldorf School focus on these aspects to help the children grow.
We held our Waldorf Teacher Training on February 20th through the 23rd. It was good to welcome Tom, Laurie, and Patrice to our School. They come from Denver Waldorf School and New York, to help train our teachers. We hope to see them again soon!
