A Winter Fair Note of Thanks
Winter Fair was a tremendous success!! Winter Fair had a magnificent turnout!!
We had so many amazing volunteers: parents and their extended families, teachers, alumni and friends whose contributions made all the difference! Thank you all so very much!
I would especially like to acknowledge Patricia, Peelu, Lois, Kyra and the entire Winter Fair committee for their unwavering hard work, preparation and dedication to our school's largest event.
Our school was decorated beautifully. When we entered, the smell of white pine filled the air. Our eyes were drawn to a magnificent window frame illustrating the invaluable depth and breadth of Waldorf education at our school. Special thanks goes out to Jay Piercy and Liz Grier who created this one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
It was so rewarding to watch the children marvel at the splendour of our Magical Forest. They were also captivated as they watched our devoted faculty perform the puppet show! We enjoyed the sounds of our children's angelic voices united in song. Thank you Margaret Moncrieff for your leadership in drawing forth their talents. We all thoroughly appreciated the music of many dedicated, talented musicians. Our youngest ones even danced at the foot of the stage!
The children loved crafting treasures from paper, wood, pinecones and beeswax. Their creations are sure to make it into our homes and on our tables and walls this festive season. Adults and children alike enjoyed scouting out that perfect gift for loved ones from our elaborate silent auction and from a wonderful selection of goods from local artisans.
We enjoyed the delicious, healthy food catered by Epicurious made with vegetables donated by Fare Well Farm. It was fun to indulge in the delicious desserts generously donated by our dedicated parents and grandparents.
Our school community truly exemplified that 'Many hands do make light work'! Thank you all for giving of your time, talents and skills with such positive energy and enthusiasm. It was a wonderful day. Winter Fair is truly a unique gift we give to our children (and, whoâ€™s kidding who...we all love it too)!
Now please take a moment to view the lovely pictures on our website. Thank you so much David Chang for capturing the memories in your exquisite photographs.
At this special time of year, I wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah and Happy Solstice!
