Golden Valley News

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.

Farmer Matt, Garden Teacher, is proud to announce that the Golden Valley River School was selected to benefit from a grant managed by Project Apis m. or PAm (Apis Mellifera = Western Honey Bee).  The school gardens are now part a test site to implement 3 of PAm's successful seed mixes. These seed mixes which were granted by Project Apis Melifera, are also being tested by UC Davis.  We were granted almost 40 pounds of seeds.

Welcome back for another great school year!  Our teachers have been hard at work all summer learning new curriculum and developing block plans for the entire year.  Many of our teachers have taught teachers at the college, sharing their wealth of wisdom and experience with new to the grade and new to the pedagogy teachers.  Labor Day weekend, teachers and staff new to the pedagogy will begin their Waldorf Education Certificate training.  They are committed to spending Friday night, Saturday and Sunday to lessons and artistic endeavors.
