Photos: Weekly Pantry Walk – Grades Service Learning


Our grade school students went on their second Pantry Walk of the year on Friday. It was a smaller group than usual this week because 2nd, 3rd, and 6th grades were away enjoying a field trip. Each week until Thanksgiving break they will take our community donations to the Wauconda/Island Lake Food Pantry. Thank you for your donations so far! Please keep donating as you are able. Our next Pantry Walk is this Friday, October 19th.

Waldorf education echoes the essence of Michaelmas. Each and every one of us has gifts to bring to the world. Michaelmas is a reminder of the process of becoming as we strive toward our full potential. For children, Michaelmas and themes of courage are manifested in activities of the will, so in the spirit of Michaelmas during this season, we give them opportunities for deeds that engage their wills and help them to think outside of themselves to others.

Our Walk was accompanied this week by Beth Bejnarowicz, mom of a DVWS alumnus. Many thanks to her for the great photos of the day!
