Martin Luther King March
School will be closed on Monday, January 20, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The city of Hillsborough will host multiple events that are open to the public.
Emerson Waldorf students attended last year and the plan is to go again! Join us for this wonderful experience. We march and sang and linked arms and then gathered at Weaver Street for treats afterward. We did not participate in the event that followed last year.
The Martin Luther King Commemorative March will begin at the Courthouse at 9:00 am. Community members will march down Churton Street to Mt. Bright Baptist Church at 211 W. Union St, Hillsborough.2014 Martin Luther King Celebration Events

Flow Forms for Sale
There are currently 3 sets of flow forms for sale at Emerson Farm. The forms were made by adult volunteers and some of the EWS children during Jennifer Greene's visit several years ago. If you know of anyone who might be interested in purchasing them, please share this information with them. Funds will go to Wrightwood Press.
They cost $2000 per set, not including transportation and installation. They are similar to the Malmo Flow Form
(click on the link to see example) except that the entry form at the top is larger and more rounded. The entry flow form that we have is called the Boulder and is an original design by Jennifer Greene.
Wrightwood is willing to take payment in installations if that helps! Please contact Maurice York at email@example.com
or 919-768-3532 if you are interested in purchasing a set.
Twister, Monopoly, Charades, Chess...

Lyle Estill Inspires EWS High School Students
by Sierra Bradshaw-Kreimer
Before holiday break, Lyle Estill visited and spoke with the High School Sustainability class. He is the editor of Small Stories, Big Changes: Agents of Change on the Frontlines of Sustainability
, as well as the author of various other sustainability-oriented books, and the founder of Piedmont Biofuels. He had a casual, impressive presence. His thoughts on sustainability were impactful, and he synthesized great amounts of information and ideas extremely well. For example, when asked what he considered sustainability to be, he replied that it is “putting as much into the pot as you take out of the pot. Otherwise, the pot runs empty.” He emphasized that sustainability is something that can be incorporated into any aspect of any person’s life. Whatever is significant to you, it can be sustainable-ized. Also, the frankness with which he spoke of the problems and obstacles facing Piedmont Biofuels and sustainability at large was welcome. He spoke on sustainability with an expertise that comes from an immersion in the subject, and was almost intimidatingly intelligent. After hearing him speak, sustainability seems both more complex and vast, and more workable in everyday life.
Lyle Estill and other leaders in sustainability will be speaking at Fearrington on February 6, 7-9 pm. Click here

The Boys' and Girls' Middle School teams started 2014 with great games against Carolina Friends school on Friday, 1/10. The girls showed a new "trap" defense that was very effective, causing many turnovers by CFS. Although the girls lost a close one, they played with great determination and improved skills.
The Boys' team practiced extra hard before this game, since they knew they were going to be about 3 players short. They came out with a fierce resolve to keep their winning streak intact and they succeeded. They beat CFS not only in scoring, but also in getting loose balls and rebounds.
Both Middle School teams play this Tuesday at Durham Academy and next Tuesday at home against Trinity.
Winter Ultimate Team Victorious!
The week before Christmas was an exciting week for our Winter Ultimate team.
On Dec 15, we faced our longtime rival, Carolina Friends School, and
the pressure was on. We started strong in a hard-fought and exciting
match and came out victorious, 8-6!
Then on Tuesday the 16th, we met Triangle Day at their field. Never
trailing in the game, and with great teamwork and a strong offense, the
Gnomes won 15-7.
We have lots more games coming up in January – check out the online athletic calendar
and come along and cheer us on!

~ we all know that aging starts with our cells ~ stress, poor diet, and environmental toxins can wreak havoc on our cells every day. The more they're bombarded, the more vulnerable they become to conditions that trigger aging. Studies show that resveratrol, the compound that gives red wine its health benefits, helps to cut down on the degenerative diseases of aging. Shaklee offers Vivix, the only product on the market that includes both resveratrol and a proprietary phytonutrient blend, making it 10X more powerful than resveratrol alone. Go here
