My retirement is made much better knowing that the Golden Valley Charter Schools faculty and staff continue to be committed to bringing Waldorf education to their students and families. Both recent graduations are a testament to their hard work! Congratulations Orchard School class of 2019 and Ms. Hidden and River School class of 2019 and Mr. Sutton and Mrs. Brooks.

Congratulations to Mr. Phillips, who tied for the 2018 Best of Orangevale’s Teacher of the Year award. The Best of Orangevale is a local competition produced by the Orangevale View and sponsored by the Orangevale Chamber of Commerce and Orangevale Recreation & Park District. It is Orangevale’s premier business award.

On the day of the award banquet, a group of Orchard representatives, wearing Mr. Phillips’ iconic bow tie, gathered to help celebrate Mr. Phillips at the Best of Orangevale Award Banquet.  When his name was announced, there was so much support and excitement.
