High School Visits NC Museum of Art
On Tuesday, November 20, the whole High School went to the North Carolina Museum of Art to see two exhibitions. The first was an exhibition of about 100 different still lives and the second was an exhibition of some of the works of Edvard Munch.
Ms Guinan started off the day by giving the students some background information on Munch and having them all participate in the creation of one of Munch's most famous pieces, entitled "The Scream".
After arriving at the museum the students had time to look at an exhibition of photographic work done by some High School students. This exhibition, called "The Power of the image" included the works of 2 of our students: Shanti Rogers and Shay Stifelman. We then had some docents guide us through the Still Life exhibition, before proceeding to the Munch exhibition. We had time at the end of the day to continue browsing through the museum, walk to the cloud chamber and pose for some pictures before returning to school.Therisa Pienaar

We Have a New Shed!
Read the Full Story on Our Farm Blog
This weekend was very productive at Emerson Farm. We made huge progress on both our new shed and the flow form that second and third grades helped to pour in spring of 2011.
from a Waldorf blog...
The TV stays off. The laptop stays closed for the most part. The blinds are open to let the sunshine in (though it's summer in the desert, so the windows must stay closed tight until it starts to cool down). We sing songs. We read fairy tales. We do the dishes together. We fold laundry (something that I used to dread, but is now a beloved part of every Monday and Thursday). We paint. We take walks. We visit friends and family. We make things. We lay quietly together. We make up silly stories. We laugh. We ignore Facebook. We ignore email. We ignore Pinterest. Those things are still there when N is asleep in bed, dreaming little nearly-four-year-old dreams, and they don't seem to mind that I have ignored them all day. N, on the other hand, would very much mind.
Things are peaceful in our home. Things are happy. They haven't always been, when things and other people were more important. When we allowed television and the internet to control our schedules and take our attention away from each other and the beautiful world around us. When we felt like everything was forced, and everything was a struggle.
This way is so much better for us.Read the Full Post
Help With Bullying
THE MANY FACES OF BULLYING FROM THE CORRIDORS OF OUR SCHOOLS TO THE CORRIDORS OF POWER
This CD explores an alternative to the punitive - permissive dilemma we often face when responding to wrongdoing such as bullying. This third way is known as 'accountability without blame'. The presentation traces the many layers of bullying from the school environment through to current events. It offers practical home- and school-based solutions that when implemented can be a part of lasting change in the world.
"So often I feel helpless when I see what's going on in the world. Hearing this presentation not only gave me hope but it gave me a point to begin." Misha Kemp (Parent & Doctor)
We have great CDs to lend from the EWS Library located in the Main Office. The CD listed here is available along with others by Kim John Payne. In addition to great audios, there are many Waldorf parenting books available.
This Week's Verse
The first light of Advent is the light of stones.
Stones that live in crystals, seashells, and bones.
The second light of Advent is the light of plants.
Roots, stem, leaf, flower and fruit by whom we live and grow.
The third light of Advent is the light of beasts.
Animals of farm, field, forest, air and sea.
All await the birth in greatest and in least.
The fourth light of Advent is the light of humankind.
The light of love, the light of thought, to give and to understand.

Free to a Good Home
We are looking for a home for our lovely tortoise shell cat, Callie.
We adopted her when someone found her wandering around an empty parking lot. She does not tend to be a lap cat but she does like to be petted. She likes to spend the majority of her time outside (especially at nights). Usually she just comes inside to eat and sometimes to take a "cat nap." She has been unhappy with the latest two dogs that we have brought into the house, so we feel obligated to find her a better place. We are hoping there may be someone who lives in the country (or at the very least in a neighborhood that does not have a lot of traffic) and would be willing to adopt our dear cat. Please contact Pat McKenzie at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 919.308.0721.
