Our children enjoyed working together as a village Thursday doing all manner of tasks to celebrate Michaelmas. They made dragon bread, helped Farmer Barry plant bulbs, gathered wood and made soup together. The whole school then had the lunch they prepared together! After lunch the children enjoyed the Saint Michael slays the dragon play performed by the 2nd and 6th grades! Wonderful work!!
One of the unexpected and wonderful treats that day was that the sand for the sandboxes was delivered! The driver of the very large truck was a wonder to watch pull the truck into the play yards, then dump the sand into the boxes! Then the real play began, see the pictures to see the pure joy that sand can bring! Many thanks to all of you that helped with the yard sale that raised the money for the sand!!!
Please be sure to lease your 4 legged friends when on TWS campus, this is per the parent handbook. Also, dogs do doo, so please scoop it to help us keep our campus clean and healthy for our children! Many thanks!

Five Contacts for our fall giving campaign
As many of you know, our school has a fund raising component built in to its budget. Our giving campaigns, both in the fall an in the spring, are the most important means by which we have to meet our fund raising goals and keep our school running smoothly. In turn, we are asking each parent at the school to pass along the contact information (mailing address, phone number and email address) for five people that Taos Waldorf School can contact with a tasteful and informative donation request.
The parent representative for your class will be collecting these contacts in the coming weeks and we hope to have letters in the mail by November 11th. Although it may seem like a small request, this is probably the most significant way in which each of you can help our school to grow strong. Thank you for your help.
