Two years ago our community purchased the former Morgan Horse Museum to create a new high school campus, and began planning an expansion of the grade school. Renovations for the new high school began in April with the goal of opening in the fall. We are so grateful to everyone who has already joined in this effort.

From the start, our capital campaign has been driven by the needs of our students and teachers.

And from the start, the students have asked, “How can we help?!” So when they learned that we are so close to our goal some high school students got together to create their own message about what they love about their school. Click on the image above to see it.

If you are so moved, please consider a donation or pledge to the campaign. We have only $21,000 to raise to meet our initial goal.

Turtle Lane offers Art and Nature camps for children ages 3-8 and Adventure camps for active 8-12 year olds.  Campers of all ages will enjoy summer fun on the Lake Champlain Waldorf School’s 22 acres of fields, forests and gardens.

The Class of 2014 presented their projects in the first part of April.

Here is a beautiful slideshow put together by Mairead Collins, class of 2014. The culmination of Mairead’s senior project on happiness was to lead a weekend retreat with ninth and tenth grade girls on the subject of finding their own happiness. The weekend planned by Mairead and her mentor, Joan White-Hansen, included yoga, dance, meditation, artistic work, and shared meals featuring whole, organic foods.
