Class III - Winter Haiku

Date:  Friday, December 28, 2018 Byline:  Select Students in Class III

Before departing for Winter Break, Class III students learned about Haiku and each wrote one themselves. The students wrote about winter and topics that inspired them in the colder months. Here is a sample of a few of their Haiku poems. To see them all, walk the Class III hallway where the written Haiku are mounted on hand-cut snowflakes.

Ask any graduating Senior what they remember about fourth grade, and chances are you will hear the same answer from many of them: castle building, knighthood ceremony, World Fair, and the medieval feast and fair. These activities are planned as the culminating and crowning exercises for the larger units of Class IV studies in history.

Update on Admissions and Enrollment

Date:  Friday, May 4, 2018 Byline:  Todd Winters, Director of Admissions

We are deeply appreciative of the ongoing advocacy and support for our admissions and outreach efforts. The School’s enrollment is healthy due, in part, to the work of our Parent Ambassadors in their admissions outreach and support of new families in their journey to Waterford. More broadly, each and every Waterford parent is an Ambassador and we are grateful for those of you who share your “Waterford Story” with prospective families.
