2010 Graduation
 

On the last Thursday in May, AWS celebrated its 4th annual graduation ceremony in the beautiful sanctuary of East Lake United Methodist Church. It was a lovely evening, and watching the 8th graders was yet another reminder of why I, especially as a developmental psychologist, truly love Waldorf education— it celebrates meaningful rites of passage deliberately and by design.

The Adaptibility of AWS by Lisa Grupe, Ph.D.

What does AWS have in common with bacteria? Adaptability! Bacteria continue to proliferate, adapt and morph even in the face of modern medicine. They are amazing microorganisms, adapting to almost any threat and emerging stronger as a result. In its almost 30 year history, AWS has met many challenges and, as a result, it has become more streamlined, more nimble, and more efficient. 

 

Waldorf Olympics 2013 by AWS Parent, Dave Hall

Dave Hall participated in the 5th graders' 2013 Southeastern Waldorf Olympics as a chaperone. In this excerpt from his blog post he writes about how the experience went beyond his expectations

"...What I didn’t know was how drawn in I would become, how in two short days I would come to care for and take a special interest in kids I’ll probably never see again, or how vital I would come to see this experience and how awesome it is I have a wife who’d be so insistent that this is the way our children would be educated."

Administrator Ad Lib by Lisa Grupe, Ph.D.

This time of year in the life of a school is one of many “firsts.” Certainly, we welcome First Graders into the Elementary program; we also welcome new students into many of the other grades... Personally, it is a favorite time for me. I reflect back on my own Waldorf journey which began a dozen years ago when I started the journey through the grades with my own four-person First Grade class with our “Rose Ceremony” in the Auditorium. This summer I had the opportunity to sit with one of those four students -- now, unbelievably, 17 years old! -- at a college recruiting fair, Colleges That Change Lives. While college may seem a long way off for many of you, some research was shared at this fair that seems relevant to all of you...
