8th Grade Projects Presentation

Let’s Support These Amazing Students

One hallmark of the 8th grade year is the completion of an 8th Grade Project. These independent projects give each student the chance to study and experience something of their own choosing over an extended period of time.

A Tale from Tibet | All the way to Lhasa
How far is it to Lhasa? Very far. Up windy slopes, over mountain torrents and snow, a boy and his yak keep going. Will they ever reach the holy city of Lhasa? The boy doesn’t know, but an old woman has told him he can make it there before nightfall. Its wise and simple message will encourage children of any age who dream of a shining goal that seems “very far.”

Children ages 3 – 9 will enjoy this story as it comes alive with silk marionettes. Following the performance, delicious popsicles will be served in the playgarden.

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

with guest speaker Rev Bowen
Ain’t it Pretty!
Learn why Waldorf education emphasizes creativity and hands-on learning.
Tuesday | February 12 | 6:00 – 7:30pm @ Nevada Sage Waldorf School
(This is a free event but donations are gladly welcome.)
Join us for an engaging evening with Waldorf educator, Rev Bowen on the importance of creativity and the arts as a powerful means to educate the whole human being. Learn how Waldorf education meets each stage of human development; physical, emotional, psychological, cognitive and neurological within the curriculum.
If you are asking if Waldorf is right for your family or if you are seeking more information about Waldorf’s unique approach to education, then we encourage you to attend this special evening.


Rev Bowen served as a class teacher for eighteen years at the Live Oak Waldorf School in Meadow Vista, California, where he is now in his first year serving as the Pedagogical Development Director. He taught two classes from first through the eighth grade and another class for seventh and eighth. He attained his Waldorf Teaching Certificate from the Rudolf Steiner College and his Master’s in Human Development from St. Mary’s University. He has taught various courses and workshops for Waldorf teachers, public school teachers, and homeschooling families interested in Waldorf methods and/or pedagogy.  Rev loves Anthroposophy as a spiritual path but has no interest in becoming a devotee of Rudolf Steiner. When he’s not visiting Waldorf schools, Rev enjoys listening to and making music, kayaking, snowboarding, playing (non-video) games, hiking, camping, and biking.

What’s your vision for our school?

Our School is Growing. Let’s build our dream school together.

All school families, faculty and board members are invited to join us for a full day Visioning Workshop to develop a unified vision for our dream school.

The day will include:

• Our history as a school

• Examples of other Waldorf schools who have turned their vision into reality

• Group Visioning of our ideal school

• Introduction of Acorns to Oaks, our campaign for growth

• Invite everyone to become involved in actively creating our vision

The Visioning Workshop will be moderated by George Hoffecker and Donna Burgess, from Hoffecker Burgess Consulting. They’ve had decades of experience helping Waldorf schools like ours develop unified, long-term visions for growth.

This Visioning Workshop will be the official kick-off to our Acorns to Oaks campaign for growth. It’s an important first step in developing a unified vision for our dream school.
We invite you to come share your ideas about how our school should grow and how we can best serve our children and our community moving forward.
Our vision will ultimately come to life in a plan for a permanent campus that can hold our students for years to come and a capital campaign that will help us raise the funds we need to make our vision a reality.
The workshop will be facilitated by George Hoffecker and Donna Burgess from Hoffecker Burgess Consulting. They’ve had decades of experience helping Waldorf schools like ours develop unified, long-term visions for growth.
We look forward to seeing you at this event and to hear your vision for the future of our school. We encourage at least one parent from every school family to attend this event.
