Our Unfolding Curriculum 1st-8th Grade
You have a rising 1st-8th grade student. Knowing, understanding, and remembering how the Waldorf curriculum unfolds before your developing child is always something to stay abreast of.
Meet European-trained Master Waldorf teacher, Astrid Maclean for a revealing presentation about the 1st-8th grade curriculum. Why do we do what we do, when we do it?
View student work 1st-8th grade, enjoy delicious refreshments, socialize with parents and learn more about what you can expect from a Lower School education at the Emerson Waldorf School.
The evening presentation will be in the Brown Wing of the High School, Tuesday, March 12, 2013, 7-8:30pm. Plan to park in the Early Childhood parking lot and follow the rope light to the Brown Wing.
