Friday night, at the new-parent pot-luck, we learned that we had another meeting last night, the New School Year Meeting. The first hour was just new parents, and then the second hour was all parents, and then after that we had a meeting in Andrew’s classroom, with his teacher. Overall it was a really nice experience. The community at the Waldorf School is great and we feel that the atmosphere and philosophy coincide nicely with our parenting principles. I think that my favorite part of the evening was at the beginning of the second hour, when all the parents were led in the singing of a song. I have never been to a meeting that started that way.
