Waldorf School of Baltimore students Ryleigh Poole (8th grade), Madeline Martak (7th grade), and Ashley Passmore (6th grade) took home first place in Johns Hopkins' annual Tower of Power competition. Team Waldorf's tower measured 4 feet, 6.5 inches tall, besting a team of Johns Hopkins University undergraduates. Poole, Passmore, and Marsak celebrated their victory by gleefully stomping on their structure!

Wow, great news coming out of Estonia and the Waldorf Haridus School! We love when parents actively seek and establish holistic education environments for their children.
"There are nine parent-owned Waldorf schools in Estonia — of these, four have been set up in the past decade. The Association of Free Waldorf Schools and Kindergartens of Estonia says there are 1,200 students in such schools this year — twice the number five years ago." http://ow.ly/CbtO30mKKr8

In addition to cultural excursions off-campus, each WSB student, starting in first grade, performs a class play to a captive audience of family and fellow students.
Why is this noteworthy?
Because "seeing live theatre appears to make students more understanding and accepting of different people... being exposed to something outside of their narrow world they gain some greater understanding of and acceptance of that broader world." http://ow.ly/ZlVO30lMz0x

We are one month away from our Winter 2019 Parent & Child classes, where we teach parents, guardians, and other caretakes how to redirect versus just saying, "No." Register now at waldorfschoolofbaltimore.ticketleap.com
"Kids are naturally curious and are driven to explore the world around them. There are times we have to tell them no in order to protect them or the things around them, but when we constantly tell them no, we stifle their sense of wonder and deny them opportunities to grow and learn." http://ow.ly/5aeC30mKV6Z

WOW! Congrats to Housatonic Valley Waldorf School on receiving a $600,000 grant from the NoVo Foundation.
"The grant will fund three primary areas: variable tuition (tuition assistance), diversity work, and teacher development, with the goal of promoting diversity, equity, and inclusivity within the student body and school community." http://ow.ly/3BOB30mpbyq

Q: "Do we explain mathematics, or do we encourage students to think for themselves and form their own mental images, out of which they then generate mathematics?"
