Have you seen the basket filled with postcards at the main office? Take a few and mail them (only $1.15 postage needed) to other Waldorf schools around the globe!

The exchange is going well, we are gathering a good number of cards from schools across the pond and throughout the world… our display will be grand!!

The postcards have been beautifully illustrated by our students and are already addressed to friends far and wide. International postage is all you need to provide.

Thank you for taking part in this incredible worldwide connection!!!

DMS Student Art: 2019 Calendars for Sale

DMS Calendars for Sale – All Proceeds support the 12th Grade Trip!

If you didn’t get a chance to buy a DMS Calendar at the Winter Faire, no worries. There are a few copies of this limited printing available in the main office and the high school office for sale.

The artwork was created by students from Kindergarten to Grade 8. A calendar is symbolic of the yearly rhythm. Waldorf schools across the world integrate art in the curriculum – from wet-on-wet painting in early childhood to learning about the platonic solids in 8th grade. Each month includes a line from the lower grades morning verse.

The calendars are selling for $15. All proceeds go the senior class fund. They are a wonderful holiday gift. 

Senior Class Go Fund Me Campaign

The DMS High School Class of 2019 has set up a Go Fund Me campaign to help raise funds for their Senior Class Trip. 

The 12th graders are appreciative of any amount you are able to contribute. The goal is to raise $5,000.

Please spread the word with friends, family, and of course share the link on social media! The more people we can get involved, the better. This is a great Christmas gift to give your senior, in lieu of gifts.

Thank you for helping to support our Senior Class so they can make it to their goal.
