Friday, January 20th at 7pm Shelburne Campus

We are pleased to offer a screening of the movie “Mother Nature’s Child: Growing Outdoors in the Media Age” on Friday, January 20th at 7:00pm. The film examines why children need unstructured time outside, what the place risk-taking has in healthy child development, and how play is a form of learning. It also looks at the ways children growing up in urban areas connect to nature and what it means to educate the “whole” child. Please join us after the screening for a panel discussion. $5 donation suggested. RSVP to Pam at

Monday, February 20, 7:00 PM SHELBURNE CAMPUS

It’s one of our deepest desires to feed our children well, but what exactly does that mean in this age of choices and conflicting claims? How do we encourage kids to eat a variety of foods? How do we find time to prepare healthy meals? A kindergarten teacher and a Certified Health Counselor, both experienced mothers, share information and ideas for supporting your family’s health through good nutrition.

Led by JoAnne Dennee and Maureen Wheeler. FREE. RSVP to Pam Graham:

Friday, March 9th

Dear Community, Jenny Rehkugler is planning a dance-a-thon for her senior project on March 9th at the Shelburne town hall for both the grade school and high school students. All the money raised from the event will go to Hunger Free Vermont, a local organization with a mission to “end the injustice of hunger and malnutrition for all Vermonters.” She is looking for help from the Waldorf community with anything from raffle donations to helping set up to being a chaperon at the dance. Please contact Jenny if you are interested in helping. 802-734-4907 or Email

Here’s how the pledge form works…

  • Ask family, friends and neighbors to make a donation to Hunger Free Vermont
  • Whoever raises the most money will win an I-POD TOUCH!
  • Make sure you bring your pledge sheet and all the money you raise to the dance so you can be considered for the grand prize
  • Admission is FREE with a filled out pledge sheet
  • For every canned good you bring, you will receive one free raffle ticket.

Your donations will make big difference in the lives of hungry children and adults all over the state of Vermont.
