Governance 2

20 minutes of your time to earn $100,000 for EWS

HS Chemistry Students_5079 3Each year we have an Annual Fund drive to support the day-to-day functioning of the school itself.  

The wonderful education that Emerson Waldorf provides to our children – the music, the art, the grounds, the staff, the wonder of our school – no piece of the Emerson Waldorf School experience is exempt from needing Annual Fund monies. This fund supports our school – it doesn't go to building an endowment or creating special opportunities – it goes straight to the bottom line.

This year, we're targeting a $100,000 goal to start providing – not just for today's operating expenses – but for tomorrow's unknown opportunities!

In order to make the Annual Fund a success, we need volunteers, as well as financial support.

Right now, we're looking for people to do the following:
  • Spend 20 minutes at one drop-off or pick-up at the Annual Fund table in October, meeting people, sharing experiences, and encouraging folks to donate.
  • Spend 20 minutes stopping in at your favorite local business and asking them to make a donation to Emerson Waldorf.
  • Can't do it right now?  Commit 5 minutes to yourself now to plan for future opportunities!
If you have an interest in volunteering your time for this, please contact me at 202-421-5870 or Jennifer_mcgonigle@merck.com.

Our New School Logo

Icon - Logo Print Horizontal

Those of you who missed the Back-to-School parent evening and the unveiling of our new logo and web comps
might be wondering what the meaning is behind our new look. Indeed, our logo was very carefully and thoughtfully designed, worked, and reworked – a beautiful fusion of Kathleen Stone-Michael’s original design, The Splinter Group’s talent, Marketing’s input, and College’s wisdom and commitment to pedagogy. There is definitely meaning behind it – this is Waldorf, after all.

The spiral is central to our icon
and is the universal symbol for the spiritual journey. It represents spiritual growth, or depending on how one is encountered by the spiral, it can represent one’s need to grow spiritually. The spiral is also the universal symbol of the life force, both cosmic and microcosmic. Spiral forms are seen in nature from the great galaxies of outer space, to the whirlwind and whirlpools, to coiled serpents and conical seashells, to the tips of the fingers – our finger prints.

The EWS spiral has 5 segments,
each representing a part of our school:  Nursery, Kindergarten, Lower Grades, Middle School, High School. And the spiral is held by the slightly asymmetrical structure that represents our physical school; i.e., the students are held by the school and are then released into the wider world upon graduating High School.

Finding a font that did the icon justice proved impossible,
so The Splinter Group hand-built our very own Waldorf font, a perfect complement to the icon. Voila our new logo!

Inspiration from the first interest meeting (Shelley's notes)...

What is the intention of the Holiday Faire?  Each person at the meeting shared her idea of what the purpose of the Faire could be.  Below are some of the ideas that were shared:
  • To give back to the community (both the EWS community and the Chapel Hill and surrounding community)

  • To create a beautiful, meaningful experience for our children
  • Indirect "fundraising" by showing who EWS is and thereby drawing future families to our school
  • To create a warm, loving, and magical aesthetic experience for all who choose to spend December 1 visiting EWS
  • To create interest in the school
  • To support local artists and crafters by including them as vendors
  • To create a multicultural Faire experience
  • To accurately and fully reflect EWS values and beliefs in each and every activity
  • To bring mindfulness and presence to all aspects of the event (mindfulness and loving kindness being such essential values in Waldorf education)
  • To raise money for our school so that we can best and fully support the selfless efforts of EWS staff and faculty
  • To create opportunities for folks to connect and more deeply establish relationships with each other and the school

During our meeting, I felt compelled to note several wonderful comments and questions that arose that really reflect the amazing warmth of our volunteers and the strong desire to create connections and to further develop relationships throughout our school community.  Here are some of those comments:

"I would love a place to sit down, have a conversation with hot chocolate or cider, or have a meal with someone..."

"How can we give back to our community?"

"Let's make sure we don't burden our early childhood families with meeting too much of our crafting needs."

"Our volunteers need clear instructions and communication.  And they need to be thanked in every way we can think of, little and big."

"Volunteers need to know they matter."

"Let's include the students in the events."

"How can we make the spaces between the activities connection spaces – little vignettes where people can gather and view art or play a little music or hear a little story told?
"

What IS Waldorf Education, Anyway?

What is...In a nutshell, just in case your friends, neighbors, and extended family are asking:

Waldorf education (also known as Steiner education) is based on the educational philosophy of the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, the founder of anthroposophy.

Learning is interdisciplinary, integrating practical, artistic, and conceptual elements. The approach emphasizes the role of the imagination in learning, developing thinking that includes a creative, as well as an analytic component. The educational philosophy's overarching goals are to provide young people the basis on which to develop into free, morally responsible, and integrated individuals, and to help every child fulfill his or her unique destiny.

The first Waldorf school was founded in 1919 to serve the children of employees at the Waldorf-Astoria cigarette factory in Stuttgart, Germany. As of 2012, there were 1,025 independent Waldorf Schools and 2,000 Kindergartens located in 93 countries.  There are currently 146 Waldorf Schools in the USA.  There is just one in North Carolina.


Emerson Waldorf & Immunizations

imagesThe Waldorf Schools around the world have focused on educating the whole child for nearly 100 years.  With over 1000 schools across 93 countries, we have a unique and broad view of childhood development and education. Across our 146 schools in the United States, we see a broad range of successful, healthy, well-adjusted students graduate and become productive members of society, their community and their families. This is the Waldorf legacy. 
 
Part of that legacy has to do with a strong partnership with parents – one that encourages them to be well-informed and to make thoughtful decisions about their children’s education and school environment. As part of that, we encourage parents to consult their physicians to determine the best course of action relative to immunizations. We respect parents' decisions regarding immunization and health. While we follow the North Carolina statute on immunizations to the letter, we leave the ultimate decision about immunizations to the parents. We do strictly enforce a stay-at-home policy for children who are sick, and we do require a physical before children engage in sports activities.

National Merit Semi-Finalist!

12th Grader Forrest Jackson Named National Merit Semi-Finalist

Forrest JacksonOn September 12, officials of National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 58th annual National Merit Scholarship Program;  Forrest Jackson was among those honored.  The National Merit Scholarship Program honors individual students who show exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies.

About 1.5 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. High School seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state. The number of Semifinalists in a state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors.

To become a Finalist, Forrest and the High School must submit a detailed scholarship application in which they provide information about his academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, and honors and awards received.  He will have to have an outstanding academic record throughout High School, be endorsed and recommended by a High School official, write an essay and earn SAT scores that confirm his earlier performance on the qualifying test.

fj3

Emerson Waldorf High School has graduated a number of students honored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.  Last year Colyer Durovich became a Finalist.  Since our first class graduated in 2006, we have had four Finalists, two Commended students, and now Forrest, a Semi-finalist with an excellent chance to advance to Finalist status.

Congratulations to Forrest Jackson and the High School!

College Counselor

New Lower School German Teachers

Katja Moos

Katja Moos German Teacher

Frau Moos is a native of Germany, where she spent the first 22 years of her life. She grew up near Frankfurt and later lived in Mannheim and Stuttgart during her college years.

It was in Stuttgart where she first became interested in Anthroposophy and Waldorf Education.


When she moved to the United States in 1991, it was to pursue graduate studies in Library and Information Science at The University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. After a few years of working in her field in Virginia, she moved back to the Triangle in 1998, got married, and later, in 2007 and 2008, had two children. 


She remained in her career until Spring 2010, but knew from the moment her girls were born that she and her husband wanted to enroll them at EWS when they were old enough to attend Nursery. While her oldest daughter was still completing Nursery and her youngest daughter was a baby, Katja realized she wanted to become more involved in the school and Waldorf Education. 


She enrolled in Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy and The Arts and volunteered for a number of school events, most recently co-chairing the school’s Annual Gala Dinner and Auction in 2012. In her former career, Katja traveled worldwide, and she has taught in a classroom setting in the US and overseas. Katja completed the World Languages Renewal Course intensive in Waldorf Education through the Center for Anthroposophy in the Summer of 2012 and is teaching German in grades 1 - 3.


Joelle Ramos

Joelle RamosJoelle fell in love with the German language in the seventh grade and has been learning it enthusiastically ever since. Her first experience abroad was for a summer with the American Field Service (AFS) in Vienna, Austria, as a High School student. She went on to spend her junior year of college on academic exchange in Regensburg, Germany.

After graduating from the University of Colorado
, Joelle spent a year as an Au Pair in Berlin, Germany. Her experiences abroad have given her invaluable insights into German and Austrian culture, and the opportunity to hone her ability to speak the German language.

Joelle earned a Master’s degree in German
and Art History from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and is currently pursuing Waldorf teacher training. She grew up in Oregon, but spent twenty-five years living in Colorado. She and her family moved to Chapel Hill in June of 2011. She loves North Carolina and is thrilled to have the chance to explore the East Coast and the South.

Joelle has two daughters who attend the Emerson Waldorf School,
and feels blessed to be a part of such a special community.  Joelle is teaching German in grades 4 - 5.

Liam Pearson-Moyers, who has never played goalie previously, allowed only one goal. Our one goal came from Anthony Day, after Kaylen Alexis kicked a perfect corner kick.

This Week's Lyrics

Yellow the Bracken

Yellow the Bracken

Yellow the bracken,

Golden the sheaves

 

Rosy the apples,

Crimson the leaves

 

Mist on the hillside –

Clouds grey and white

 

Autumn good morning –

Summer good night.


Walk in a field of gold and sing this song on a sunny, cool morning. You might just feel at one with everything and radiate that out to everyone.
