Good News from Taos Waldorf School
Celebrating Parent Partnership
Creative Approaches for Emergent Times
One of the ways Taos Waldorf School is adapting to changing times is through partnering with parents to meet many needs within our school. From cleaning to team leadership to answering the phone, we are striving to pair the talents, abilities, and interests of our community with the necessary tasks of school functioning. In this way, we are hoping to meet the economic reality of our times headon while creating a foundation of social renewal.
