The season of merriment, good food, and warm wishes of good will is upon us! Though it may not feel like it outside for us Minnesotans…yet, it is beginning to feel that way in the School Store. New items are arriving as I write this! We have circus supplies, wooden toys, books, home goods, and handwork items. The joy of unpacking these splendid items is only half as good as seeing the joy on someone’s face when they pick something up, using great care as they touch it, and wonder at how it may have been made or how much fun they will have when they bring it home.
Please join us for two heartwarming holiday events:
School Store Holiday Shopping Evening
Friday, December 4, 6 – 9 p.m.
Please join us for a relaxing, adults-only evening – and get some holiday shopping done, too! The school store will be bursting at the seams with new items and gifts to engage the heads, hands, and hearts of children of all ages. Begin your evening with a rejuvenating stretching/Pilates class and then enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages as you browse the store and a variety of Waldorf community vendors.
