Class 2/3 Farm Trip
The 3rd Grade Farm Trip is traditional in most Waldorf Schools. Third graders study the food, shelter, and clothing of many cultures throughout history and this experience
is designed to enhance that curriculum.
It is also a rite-of-passage for 9-year old children, as they enter into a developmental stage in which they have a newfound sense of self-awareness. This week-long trip may be their first extended absence from home, but within the safety and support of their class and familiar teachers, a sense of budding independence is fostered.

You know when you go to the health food store to buy your elderberry syrup and you end up spending $20 for a small bottle?

In case you are wondering what elderberry syrup is for? Elderberries have been a folk remedy for centuries and used for its antioxidant activity, to lower cholesterol, to improve vision, to boost the immune system, to improve heart health and for coughs, colds, flu, bacterial and viral infections and tonsillitis. It's a wonderful way to prevent illnesses when taken daily as well.
