Fourth and Eighth grade from the Orchard and River Schools performed in the Capitol Rotunda last week with other local Waldorf Schools. The performances were enthusiastic, artistic, and full of heart. An applause to all the teachers and parents who helped and a warm thank you to all the students for sharing in this event. The students sang the Golden Valley Charter Schools’ song while signing American Sign Language.
 
 
 

On the first Saturday in May, two eighth grade classes not only marked the arrival of spring by dressing in white, weaving flower headdresses, and dancing with bright ribbons around a maypole, but also marked and celebrated their long-standing community here at Golden Valley River School. Usually there is just one maypole and one eighth grade class dancing.  However, this year, the River School was fortunate to have two maypoles, one for each graduating eighth grade class, to celebrate, dance, and weave around in front of the school’s community.

On Tuesday, December 13th at 7:35pm, the San Juan Unified School District approved the charter renewal petition for the Orchard School. Two years ago the district staff did not recommend approval and so Orchard was given only two years as a compromise to prove itself. That changed on Tuesday night when the superintendent and staff recommended a five-year renewal and the board put it on its consent agenda. It was a unanimous vote!
