16 May The 2012~2013 Yearbook is Here!

The 2012-2013 Yearbook is Here! It's that time of year again, and The 2012-2013 Denver Waldorf School Yearbook is printed and ready for you! This year's yearbook was created by a group of dedicated 8th graders who worked hard throughout most of the school year to bring you a very creative, Waldorf-inspired representation of this year's students. We're excited to bring you photos of our toddlers to our seniors and a lot of great artwork throughout the grades. The 8th Grade Yearbook Committee chose a growing tree throughout the four seasons as the theme for this year's book. The tree starts small in the kindergartens and grows through the seasons and the grades to an impressive full size by the time it reaches the seniors. The students learned the basics of photography, writing and layout design to put together the book, and I was very impressed with their quickness to grasp new subjects and incorporate their own creativity and artistic abilities into new forms. Head over to The Denver Waldorf School Business Office and see Lori Pucelik, Business Director, or Carolyn Goodman, Financial Coordinator, to pick up a yearbook for your family! The cost is $42 and cash and checks are acceptable. ~ Lydia Fiser, 2012-2013 Yearbook Advisor ...

Staffing Changes by Judy Lucas, Administrative Director This is the time of year when we say a fond farewell to staff who are leaving and announce new staff for next year. As you may already know, Trent Price, Lead Assistant in Woodrose Preschool/Kindergarten, and his family will be returning to Oregon. Kimberly Rickards, Nap Assistant, will become the new Woodrose Lead Assistant. Kimberly has been involved with teaching since 1990, has worked in three different early childhood settings, and has been working in Woodrose for over a year. Rachel Ladasky, Lead Assistant in Morning Glory Preschool/Kindergarten, will be opening a new off-campus nursery for The Denver Waldorf School called "Bluebell Garden" in Park Hill. Her Lead Assistant will be Mary Ray, currently serving as Nap Assistant in Morning Glory. Rachel and Mary have worked together for over two years in Morning Glory.

We are still looking to fill the piano accompanist position. Elizabeth Harden will be completing her project in transitioning administrative staff into a new integrated software system. We will be looking to replace her with a part-time registrar position. Julie Vogel will be a full-time student next year, so we will be looking for a new Games Teacher for Grades 1 – 3.

09 May 6th Grade Student Seeking Donations for Burmese Orphanage

6th Grade Student Seeking Donations for Burmese Orphanage Dhiraj Senior, a 6th grade Denver Waldorf School student, is seeking donations for a small orphanage in Mae Sot Thailand as part of a community service element of The Denver Waldorf Middle School curriculum. Senior writes: "I am looking for donations for a small orphanage in Mae Sot Thailand. These orphans have no support from the government and the reason why is because they are refugees from Burma (Myanmar), a place that has had civil war for over 60 years.
