Summer Projects and Progress

This April, Richmond Waldorf School celebrated the one-year anniversary of the purchase of our new building. With summer upon us, we are taking time to reflect, to dream, and to work. As we look back on how far we’ve come, we are inspired to dream about how far we have yet to go: to truly embody our mission as a school that provides an education that inspires peace and purpose.

Halfway through summer we can be proud of the progress we’re making: our first season of a full-fledged summer camp and early childhood program; a beautifully lazured rainbow hallway; a newly divided classroom; an inspiring Board-Faculty retreat.  At every point we are encouraged by the vision and dedication of our faculty and volunteers.

On a larger scale, the Waldorf Education movement also continues to gain momentum and is actively celebrating the Centennial anniversary of Waldorf Education with ongoing projects to unite and connect the 1,100+ Waldorf Schools across the world. Stay tuned for later posts for how RWS is involved in Waldorf100 efforts.

There is much to share, so follow the blog this year for a closer look at the action and impact of Waldorf education, both here at home and across the world. We hope you will stay tuned for our journey.  Until then….

Some views of the newly lazured hallway. Our very own Roberto Trostli applied the lazure treatment, and volunteers helped to prep the walls for painting.

With the help from Building & Grounds Committee members, a room divider is replaced by a permanent dividing wall in the Middle School wing.


And the outside is getting some work, too! Here is the in-progress hillock being added to the Grades Playground.
