Golden Valley News

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. 

The Grades Home Study Hybrid Program is a unique opportunity for the melding of home and classroom-led instruction under the guidance and teaching of a Waldorf Trained and credentialed teacher. Golden Valley Charter Schools developed this program to meet the child in a multitude of ways. By offering an extension to the already rich Outdoor Kindergarten, families can continue with the strong rhythm and learning mentality that has gained foundation.

As a program that is integrated both within the classroom and the home setting, families can grow together through rhythm, curriculum, festival life, and community. The in-class component, led by a trained Waldorf Teacher with experience in grades 1-4, brings rhythm and academic foundation to the student.
