Fall Welcome Back – Picnic, Potluck & Pie Auction!

“A healthy social life is found only when, in the mirror of each soul, the whole community finds its reflection, and when, in the whole community, the virtue of each one is living.”

Rudolf Steiner

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to 2022!! It is wonderful to truly be all together again.

To CELEBRATE, the Welcome Back Event is well under planning. As tradition, the Grade 8 class is pleased to be your hosts.

The purpose of the event is to:

Celebrate our return to school, and welcome new and familiar faces around a hearty potluck & take part in our first Parent Council Meeting of the school year.

Please come with your family, bringing along the usual arsenal of picnic supplies including blanket, dishes & cutlery – and a dish to share with others.

There will be a table set up for the food. Please remember to collect your wares at the end of the event.

If you or someone you know can bake a pie, please do so and bring it for auction (no nuts please) the day of the event!

The grade 8 class will take care of providing water, juice, or tea for all.

A Message from Parent Council

Parent Council is already bustling with activity as we start planning for the coming year. This year Phaedra Tettero-Crosby and Ami Dehne will be chairing and facilitating Parent Council. Phaedra is a mother of 2 students at Trillium in grades 5&7 and also has 2 small children at home. Phaedra is a Waldorf Teacher and has taught at Trillium before going on Maternity leave. She is thrilled to stay connected and involved with the school by being the Chair of Parent Council. Ami Dehne is a mother of two children at the school in grade 2& Kindergarten. Ami is excited to use her facilitation skills not only in her business as a business coach but at the school in facilitating the Parent Council meetings.

Ami and Phaedra’s vision for Parent Council meetings this year are to create connection, to have fun and to build community. We want parents to leave the meetings feeling energized, connected and informed.

We will be meeting every other month during the school year, in person at the School for our Parent Council Meetings.
