Calendar of the Soul 

Week Twelve
The radiant beauty of the world
Compels my inmost soul to free
God-given powers of my nature
That they may soar into the cosmos,
To take wing from myself
And trustingly to seek myself
In cosmic light and cosmic warmth.
Our summer facilities team has been hard at work getting the campus in shape. Lots of sweat and long hours! Thank you to Ms. Rachel, Ms. Shannon, Mr. Ben, Mr. Thomas and Mrs. Korn for all your hard work.
LAST DAY! TO SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS! 
 
The Strategic Planning Committee has been hard at work and would love to get feedback from you. You should have received a very quick 3 question survey that will help inform their direction as they work on the plan. This is your chance to share your thoughts in a succinct and anonymous way. If you did not receive the survey please email bbazemore@olympiawaldorf.org
As this year comes to a close, it is a time to reflect...

It is hard to articulate how challenging both physically and mentally these Covid years are on our Faculty. We are incredibly thankful for the strength and energy each and every one of our teachers put into teaching from the heart and holding our students and their needs at the forefront amidst the chaos. THANK YOU to our Faculty.

We had an incredible amount of turnover in our Administration, but each and every new hire has brought a fresh and positive perspective. You've all worn so many different hats while trying to keep a smile on your face. THANK YOU to our Administration.

Our Board has stepped in this year in a way they have yet to have to do in many years. They took on a role that consumed countless hours, making big decisions for our community...and all as volunteers. THANK YOU to our Board.

Our Parents Association rallied to support all of the above. Their dedication helped when help was needed. THANK YOU to our PA.

Our OWS families kept our school safe, kept our students cared for and supported our teachers. Thank you to all of our volunteers for helping at events and beyond. THANK YOU to our OWS families.

And finally, our students. They are the reason we are here. They are the reason we all care. They bond us as a school family. THANK YOU to our students for challenging us, teaching us, and guiding us. 
Total of four 20 x 30 canvas pole tents by Celina tents. $1,200 for each tent.

Great for weddings, family gatherings, festivals and other events or extra outdoor covered space at your home. They are designed to be installed over non-hard surfaces with 3-foot stakes but kits can be purchased online to install them on hardscape. You will need to disassemble and haul away the tent. One tent easily fits into the back of a pickup truck but the canvas takes two people to move. Two of the tents have tiny tares that have been patched with gorilla tape and do not leak but will be given a $50 discount. If interested contact Tiffany: tkorn@olympiawaldorf.org
