Olympics 2019-20

Dear Friends,

The Annual Olympics is an event that celebrates Human Excellence and Grace. Neither of these aspects has anything to do with competition. To ‘compete’ with another puts the integrity of the Human being at stake. The central purpose of a Waldorf School is to develop the individuality of every child and adult. This can only be possible in an environment where envy and jealousy, are not allowed to surface, stealing the joy of collaborative work. We specially request parents to help us build this mood of co‐operation by being appreciative of the efforts of all the children who would partake in the event. We also would invite you to understand that the Olympics is one final aspect of a long process – The process of immersing the young children in the real mood of Ancient Greece where Gods, Mortals and Heroes worked together for the evolution of the Human Being. Every child is a little Heracles given the earnestness with which he or she takes on the tasks set before him or her. Together let us celebrate the earnestness and seriousness of purpose that would be evident in EVERY CHILD’S effort and applaud it . We hope you’d join us in making the Olympics a Celebration of Childhood!

Dear Parents,

We hope you and your family are safe and healthy as you read this letter.  Thank you for your patience and understanding, as we have been adjusting, like you, to the drastic changes in life and work responsibilities during the last few weeks. We are extremely appreciative of our students, parents, teachers, staff, and administrators for their positivity, flexibility and resilience during these trying times. Although none of us have experienced a pandemic before, we all have to be together, understanding the situation we are in, and limiting our expectations during this challenging phase.

As we miss all of students, distance learning for Prerana Waldorf School is in full motion. We are concerned for our students’ health and well-being, as well as their families.

Our goal is to provide continuous educational opportunities and practice for students while schools are closed but also to eliminate as much stress as feasibly possible for students, parents, and teachers.
Our teachers and our staff are working long hours from home while dealing with their new, but temporary, normal.
While it is our responsibility to continue to help our children learn, we also want to compassionately take into consideration the variety of difficulties that our families and staff  are enduring during this time. We also ask for your patience and understanding as we travel this new territory, too.

Thank you for the photos, the appreciation, and the helpful feedback. Your positive responses are affirming the truly amazing work our faculty is doing to translate their teaching expertise into effective distance learning.  We appreciate you as well for doing your best to carve out space and time in your work and home life to support your children’s learning.

From 17th April 2020 for classes I to X and from 24th April 2020 for class XII scheduled summer vacation is starting, and when school resumes on 11th June for classes I to XII, and on 18th June for Nursery and Kindergarten, hopefully, life will get back to normal, eventually.
After this experience is over, our lives will include more appreciation of our blessings and our freedoms.  “This is not a time for us to panic. This is a time for us to come together.”
A huge debt of gratitude also goes to all of our doctors, nurses, hospital employees, first responders, the state Police and our state leaders for all they are doing to keep us safe and healthy.

Stay at home, stay safe!
