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.
I was also happy to see that the trellis that Orchard Parent Circle gave me at the end of that first year as principal of the Golden Valley Orchard school was in bloom! It is thriving in the Orchard School garden. Below is a photo of me from my last year as the Orchard School Prinicpal in 2015 at the closing ceremony with the telis behind me. The next photo is of me next to the blooming flowers after the school's first graduating eighth grade class in June of 2019.
