Planetarium Show and Lunch at Panda East, November 26, 10:30 -1:30
A much loved annual event is the Astronomy Class presentation at the Amherst College Planetarium. A couple of students from Mr. Weem’s 11th grade Astronomy class will present a topic that they have researched to the entire high school. After the presentation everyone will walk down to Panda East for a Hartsbrook community pre-Thanksgiving Chinese lunch! We will collect a fee of  $10 for lunch. Generally, we are finished around 1:00. When possible we ask parents to pick up their students in Amherst. There will be a bus returning to Hartsbrook but pick up time will be a bit later than Elementary school dismissal of 12:45 on that day.

Parent Evening, December 3, 6:30 pm
The theme of this meeting will be building a strong parent community. We will begin with sharing with parents of the 7th & 8th Grades experiences surrounding the parenting of a high school student.  Then we will split into multi-grade groups and work on the topic of “Building a Strong Parent Community in the High School”. Please arrive promptly at 6:30.

Open Class Day, Tuesday, December 9, 8:10 am
This is an opportunity to visit your student’s classes and bring a friend along. Experience what the life of a Waldorf student is like first-hand.

Winter Solstice Celebration, Thursday, December 18, 7:00pm – 10:00pm
The High School presents an evening of dance, song, music, poetry and laughter in celebration of the return of the light. Please bring family and friends to celebrate with us. This event takes place at Helen Hills Hills Chapel in Northampton
