Highland Hall Waldorf School

Parent Education

 

Choosing Waldorf education for your child leads to the discovery that Waldorf education is just as beneficial for you! Unlike some other schools, Waldorf boasts a thriving community that enriches, educates, and supports the whole family.  Highland Hall offers frequent parenting and artistic workshops and guest speakers on topics of interest to our community. Waldorf schools also provide a thriving festival and community life in which families are warmly brought together and lifelong friendships are formed.

 

Parent Education Lectures & Workshops

The Parent Association and school administration work together to bring experts in the field of Waldorf education to our school. Lectures and workshops are designed to further inform among our school community about Waldorf education, child development and current issues pertaining to education and parenting. Events are open to the community and general public. Suggested donation or fees may apply. See calendar below for a list of upcoming workshops and lectures.

 

Artistic Workshops

Highland Hall offers a variety of artistic workshops throughout the year for our parents and community members to enjoy and learn about the many artistic skills that are taught at our school. Some of recent workshops include: Bookbinding, Woodworking, Veil Painting, Crafts through the Grades and Eurythmy.  Please refer to calendar below to see upcoming workshops.

 

Weekly Craft Circles

Beginning in the fall, parents are invited to join our Knitting Circle on Tuesday mornings held by our handwork teacher Mona Lewis.  Parents enjoy learning how to knit and to create some of the same handwork projects that our first and second grade children are learning.  The Parent Association also holds a weekly craft circle on campus that runs throughout the year.  These parent circles are held at the patio near the Treehouse Boutique right after morning drop off and are a great way to make new friends while learning to make beautiful Waldorf-inspired crafts.

 

Renewal: A Journal for Waldorf Education

Renewal is published by the Association of Waldorf Schools in North America.  The semi-annual publication is a valuable resource for parents and contains articles about child development, parenting, children’s health, Waldorf curriculum, current research about education, and news from Waldorf schools around the world.  Renewal is offered to our parent body free of charge; we hope you will enjoy the helpful and insightful articles it contains.
