This informative talk will give tools of empowerment to families as they navigate our oversexualized and media-saturated culture.

  • Learn to hear what your child is really asking
  • Know what is appropriate at what age
  • Build open communication
  • Address safety and Internet issues

Experience the Grades

Experience the Grades

Saturday | March 2 | 10am – 12pm
The Grades and Early Childhood Departments will host an Experience the Grades morning at our school. Parents will have an opportunity to experience the grades curriculum through hands-on mini-lessons from movement activities and blackboard work, you will be a 1st grade student and work your way up through the upper-grade levels! This is a very special event and not to be missed.
All parents of rising 1st graders are respectfully asked to attend. This is a glimpse into a Waldorf grades program, and much different than a “school tour.” Rather, it is a sampling of the unique aspects of the 1st – 8th grade curriculum delivery of a Waldorf school.
We kindly ask that parents RSVP for this event (adults only, but child care may be provided should enough families need it).
RSVP at Enrollment@NevadaSageWaldorf.org
