Humble Hive Parent Education Group – Oct 30

THE HUMBLE HIVE

A Peer Lead (all things Waldorf) Parent Education Group offered every last Tuesday evening of the month from 7:00 to 8:30 in the Eurythmy room

Have you ever wondered “Why Waldorf?” Let’s discover it together. Every month we will have a new topic. If you’re in Early Childhood, the Grades, High School or just have a healthy curiosity about Waldorf Education….this might just be the little gem you were looking for.

Ms. Rachel Schmid is this month’s guest.

Join us as we get to peek into to the life of growing up Waldorf, experience a bit of Eurythmy and discover how it TRULY is the “Total Work Out” Mind, Body, and SPIRIT!

It takes such great COURAGE as a parent, to offer your child the gift of a Waldorf Education. Waldorf Education often speaks of meeting the child where they are at. Can we speak of meeting the parent where they are at??

What to bring:

Curiosity, Open Hearts AND MINDS…maybe a Notebook and Pen.

Classroom Snack Supply

Dear Families,

As you know, some of our DMS students face occasional or regular food insecurity and we do not currently have a school lunch program to support them.

The Hope and Help Committee, along with Parent Council and Student Support Services, hold periodic drives for grocery store gift cards and maintain a food supply in the administration office to benefit these children and their families.

To further bolster these efforts, your classrooms now have snack containers where we can store other non-perishable snacks such as granola bars, fruit leather, and crackers so students do not need to leave their classrooms to grab a snack from the office.

With your additional support through donations to your classroom’s snack bins we can further meet our students needs.

Thank you for your help!

Start Date: Friday, October 19

Where: HS English Room

Fee: $50 per student

The goal of this club is to bring students together and let them express themselves through varying types of dance, both partnered and not. Students will be exposed to a wide variety of dance practices to give them a deeper appreciation and knowledge of the world of dance. The students will learn a brief history of the dance form focused on at that time, and practice the basics of that form. Students will also learn and create combinations to keep their memory sharp, and their creativity flowing.

Dress: Wear clothes you can move in, no skirts or dresses. Pants and longer shorts preferred. No crop tops or shirts that will move a lot while dancing. Comfortable Tennis shoes for hip hop, and bare feet for other styles.

Note: There may be possible field trips to open dance nights or dance performances. There may be an additional fee to participate in these activities.
