Create for yourself a new, indomitable perception of faithfulness. What is usually called faithfulness passes so quickly. Let this be your faithfulness:
You will experience moments...fleeting moments...with the other person. The human being will appear to you then as if filled, irradiated with the archetype of his spirit.
And then there may be....indeed, will be, other moments, long periods of time, when human beings are darkened. But you will learn to say to yourself at such times: the Spirit makes me strong. I remember the archetype - I saw it once. No illusion, no deception, shall rob me of it.
Always struggle for the image that you saw. This struggle is faithfulness. Striving thus for faithfulness, we shall be close to one another, as if endowed with the protective power of angels."
Come one, come all to the annual Taos Waldorf School Harvestfest!!!
Festivities are this Friday (that's tomorrow) from 5p to 7p at school in the big play yard. It's a potluck, so bring something you love to eat and to share. Please bring tableware for your family.
It will be a "music potluck" as well, so if you are a musician of any kind please bring your instrument, your voice, and your good cheer. We will see what gets cooked up. And don't forget the ever-popular sack races and field games!

Dear Taos Waldorf community,
My name is Andy Salamone, and I am the newly-elected president of the Taos Waldorf School Board of Trustees. Our school year has gotten off to a vibrant and exciting start, and as we begin to settle in to our new fall routines, I thought it might be helpful to give the parent body an update on some of the inspiring things that have been taking place in our school community and to talk a little bit about the overall functioning of the school.
If you were at our fabulous all-school gathering and ice cream social last week, some of this is going to be repeat information, but there's new news within as well.
Visit our booth at the Taos Farmer's Market every Saturday morning from now through the end of the season. TWS community members new and old alike have joined forces to put together some great produce, jams, chutneys, and other fun items that will last through this winter and beyond. Proceeds go to fund the tuition of students otherwise not able to pay, and also to the Teacher Care Fund.
It's a great way to support the school, get out for some sunshine and fresh air on a Saturday morning, and run into some friends.
SEEKING SUPPLIES: the Farmer's Market team is always on the lookout for new and/or used jars, pectin, and other canning equipment. Please see Stacy Hammond or Guiditta O'Rourke for details.
Here are a few quick updates for this week:
This weekend TWS will have a presence at the Farmer's Market. Produce, canned beans, jellies, apple chutney and more will be sold. Silke will be there grinding grain and telling the story of the apple fairies. The Farmer's Market team is in need of canning jars, sugar or honey (preferably organic), 3 tablecloths, vases for flower displays, help harvesting beans or flowers. Please see Stacy Hammond or Erica Lannon to donate, share, or help.
We hope your first two weeks in school have been fantastic. Most of us are just beginning to get back into to the rhythm of the school year, so its a great time to check in with a few updates and "getting oriented" bits of information. Thanks for helping us get the year off to a great start!
This is the front of the free T-shirt that you can pick up at the Taos Waldorf School office and wear to the hearing tomorrow Morning to show your support for the Taos Mountain Charter School.
These shirts were graciously donated by a TWS parent who supports the new charter school. We have all sizes, so come on by, or call 575-751-7750.
Thanks for your support!
We are already gearing up for another blessed year at the school, and even before our first day, there are efforts underway to raise funds, clean up the school, and bring fresh eyes to the beautiful campus. This weekend, August 11th and 12th, there is a huge yard sale being held, as well as a bake sale with juice and coffee. We have a lot of clothing items but could use more donations! What a great time to go through the closets and garage and let go of those things that are no longer serving us... and help raise funds in the process! Anyone can donate items to the front of the old handwork room (new 6th grade).
Snow days! Same as the public schools, listen to KTAO (101.9FM) for updates. Let it snow, let it snow!!!
