Celebrating the opening of the Seacoast Waldorf School, faculty, staff, students and their families will assemble in the school’s new outdoor classroom and garden tomorrow at 4pm for the annual Rose Ceremony, welcoming new first graders into the grade school.
Situated just 10 minutes outside of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Seacoast Waldorf School is an independent school serving children ages 2.5 through fifth grade, with plans to grow the school through eighth grade.
The entire community has come together to ready the school for the grand opening at its new location at 403 Route 236 (HL Dow Hwy) in Eliot, Maine. Classrooms have been freshly lazured, the new grades woodshop set up, playgrounds built, state-of-the-art kitchen stocked, and the raised garden beds are overflowing with tomatoes, peppers, and sunflowers.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce the opening of Seacoast Waldorf School,” said school director, Deirdre McEachern. “As we open the door to this new school year, we continue our commitment to providing an environment that promotes joyful learning for our youngest students and academic excellence, including language studies, music, gardening and woodworking for our grades students.”
Tomorrow’s opening celebrations include visits to the new classrooms and an all-school picnic on the playgrounds.
