Reminder: Dress in Layers

Arizona Winter is Here! Dress your children in layers. Physical warmth is vital to the healthy development of children. Children need to be dressed in layers for ease of movement and comfort.

Children in the Early Childhood and early school years are still developing their internal thermometer, which means their awareness of how warm or how cool they feel is often limited. By dressing your child appropriately for all types of weather, their small bodies need not divert extra energy towards regulating their internal temperature, thus allowing them to grow and play with vigor.

Also, remember to put your child’s name on their jacket if possible and gather their layers at the end of the school day. Jackets & sweaters that are found on the play yards are sent to lost and found and then unclaimed items are donated.

No Dogs on Campus

We all love our pets and many of us want to take them to our beautiful 12 acre campus, however, PETS MAY NOT come to school or school events – Not even just for drop off or pick-up.

No personal pets are allowed on school grounds unless pre-authorized by administration. Trained service animals are allowed on school grounds. Other animals may be brought onto school grounds for educational purposes if approved by administration.

Spiral Garden – Thank you!

The 2017 Winter Spiral Garden was simply lovely! Each year the Eurythmy Room is cloaked in velvety darkness and magically transformed into a garden of evergreens and candlelight. Participants watch in awe and quiet beauty as the young children walk the spiral path bringing light into the darkness.

The event is magical and memorable.

We would like to offer our immense gratitude to everyone who contributed and participated in this event.
Thank you to all and we hope your holidays continue with the same wonder, beauty, and magic of the Winter Spiral Garden.

To a lovely new year!
