Congratulations to Haleakala Waldorf School's graduating 8th grade class!
Words cannot convey the spirit of gratitude, warmth, love, magic and good time experienced by all who attended the graduation of the 8th grade class of 2014. Everything was beautiful, and the eighth graders were delightful in their presentations. Waxman Field held the group like a chalice of positive energy. It was the mana of the class that beamed out to fill it. Their class teacher, Mr Palmore, said he could not be more impressed nor proud of the 8th grade students—every one of them. Congratulations to a wonderful class, and may their journey into high school be blessed with beauty, truth, goodness and nobility of spirit.
Our High School is preparing for its second year!
HWS proudly acknowledges a time of growth as we make our principles and values real and tangible! Our school was started in 1972 with four teachers and 50 students, down in Wailuku Union Church. In 1976 we were fortunate enough to obtain the lease to our current site out of 300 applicants. We look back and commemorate the efforts of our founding parents, board members, and teachers. They made a leap of faith that has resulted in the beautiful and strong school we have today. We look back to our history, to the philosophical underpinnings of the Waldorf method, to the mana of Haleakala, and to our own values. What strengths do we want to carry forward to the next 40 years? With the opening of our Waldorf high school last fall, we have already made a long standing wish come true! Applications are now being accepted for grades 9, 10 & 11 for 2014-2015; please click on the "high school" section at left to find out more.
