On behalf of the board of trustees, faculty and staff, I am delighted to welcome all families to River School for the 2019/2020 school year. I hope your summer break has been enjoyable and allowed rest, prompted adventure, and created renewal. Golden Valley River School will be celebrating its 20th year along with the centennial celebration of Waldorf education. It is an honor to be of service to this community during a year held in high esteem by Waldorf schools worldwide.

Congratulations to Megan E. West of 8th grade. She is the yearbook cover art contest winner. Here is what Megan had to say about her art and experience:

"When I found out that I was chosen for the yearbook cover, at first I was shocked because I don’t usually win things like this.

In the beginning of the school year, we welcome the year with an opening Rose Ceremony of white roses presented by the eighth graders to the first graders. The white rose symbolizes purity and truth for the children’s journey into the grades.
