We are a Preschool through 8th grade community, operating September to June.
School is closed for summer break, including Preschool.
We celebrate festivals, offer family education, work together on our farm, and find ways to connect to the seasons and each other.
The Social Justice Committee has monthly meetings and also plans events.
In the summer we host Farm Camp at our school Farm.

Your Body, Your Story, Your Screen: Ben Klocek - March 1, 7pm
Community Education Event on Zoom
You've noticed the countless heads bent over a phone, felt the ache in your shoulders and eyes after hours on a computer, seen screen-bound children who struggle to move on the playground. What effect is our screen time having on our bodies and lives?
Join Ben Klocek, web designer, teacher, and Sacramento Waldorf School alumni, for a look at how our experience forms our body and how screen time changes both. He offers an online presentation and discussion to explore what we can do to care for ourselves, and help our children to thrive in the digitally focused world, without sacrificing imagination, creativity, deep-thinking, presence, and our relationships.
Main Lesson Demonstration - March 5th on Campus
9:30: Arrival / Coffee Social
10:00am - 11:30am: Main Lesson
Parents/caregivers are joyfully invited to an immersive learning opportunity. This participatory demonstration will mirror the format that begins each day for 1st-8th grades; the two hour period called Main Lesson.
Waldorf alumnae and master teachers Katherine Delafkaran and Lyssa Beshears will take you on a journey through a sample morning lesson, spanning the developmental phases encompassed in our school curriculum. Experience a range of engaging learning activities, poetry recitation, singing, drawing, story and movement.
Subject Teacher Open House
March 17, 7:00 - 7:30pm on Campus
All parents and caregivers are invited to an Open House on the Cambridge Campus featuring several of our wonderful Subject Teachers. Come learn about some of our subject offerings in both the early childhood and grades programs: Spanish, Farm, Dance, Games/Movement, Life Sciences and Cyber Civics.
The Open House will be immediately followed by parent/caregiver evenings for all grades classes from 7:30-8:30pm.
