Following earthquakes in New Zealand, Monadnock Waldorf School learned
about Motueka Rudolf Steiner School, a rural Waldorf school in New Zealand.
We directed donations from parents and students in our school community to
Motueka and the school has added this donation to its building fund.
We recently heard from Peter Garlick, Manager at MRSS, thanking us
for the contribution. Here is an excerpt
from the letter:
“Thank you Monadnock Waldorf
School for your very kind and generous
donation…I have asked our gardeners
to plant a tree for MWS. We will tend
these seedlings until we can plant a
Supporters Forest at our new campus…
I hope families from your school will
one day get to visit our new school and
see your special tree.”

Coffee Fundraiser
The Eighth Grade has developed a new
fundraiser: working with Dean’s Beans
Coffee Company to provide high quality
organic, fair trade coffee. The fundraiser
supports not only this year’s Eighth Grade
trip to Nantucket, but also small farmers and
small farm cooperatives worldwide.
Dean’s Beans is part of a “fully integrated
progressive coffee trade system,” which
promotes socially just and environmentally
responsible trade. Dean’s is a founding
member of Cooperative Coffees, Inc., and
an active member in the Fair Trade Federation. They roast only organic, shade-grown
coffee that contributes to the health of farm
communities and the local environment.
The Eighth Grade will offer Dean’s Dark
or Medium Blend (in whole beans or
ground) for $10/pound, or Decaf Dark or
Medium (whole or ground) for $11/pound.
Dean’s has also agreed to offer, at a special
fundraiser price, their single-origin Timor
Atsabe, medium roast, for $10.25/pound
(whole bean) or $10.50/pound (ground).
Also available for this fundraiser: organic
hot chocolate mix ($7/8 oz.), chocolate java
drops (chocolate-covered, dark roasted coffee beans, $10/pound), and Putumayo’s CD
Music from the Coffee Lands ($12).
Note: Coffee can be purchased several
pounds at a time and stored in the freezer
until use.
The deadline for our first order is Wednesday, February 19. Coffee will be distributed
just after vacation.
To order, see an Eighth Grader, or fill out
the attached order form and drop it at the
Elementary School’s Main Office.
Thank you,
The Eighth Grade
Parent Skills and
Interests Survey
Monadnock Waldorf School has been
lucky enough to have a devoted group
of parents and friends working tirelessly on behalf of our students for over 35
years. Parents provide hundreds of
volunteer hours supporting class activities, staffing special events, guiding
fundraising activities, serving the Parent Council, acting as class parents,
participating on committees, contributing to the work of the Board of Trustees, chaperoning class trips, driving for
the ski program, caring for our buildings and grounds, introducing new families to our school, and in countless
other ways. Sometimes, even an hour
of focused expertise can add a lot of
These volunteer efforts build up our
vibrant school community. They show
our children a compelling example of
what happens when people work together. Volunteer expertise saves the
school money, allowing us to direct
resources to our students and their educational program. We thank you for all
you do!
Knowing you better will allow us to
make informed matches between the
needs of our school and your skills and
interests. Would you please complete
the form attached to this W eekly Notice

Database for
MWHS Built by
Former Parent
On a regular basis, the office at Monadnock Waldorf High School enjoys
the warmth, good will, and skills of
several parent volunteers: Theresa
Majoy, Erik Bell, and Caddie Gregory,
who volunteer regularly to cover the
front desk and carry out office support
work. Thank you, dear parents, for
your cheerful competence and generous offering of yourselves.
Recently, MWHS printed and distributed fall trimester reports from a
user-friendly, custom-built database
program ably and elegantly constructed by former MWS parent Nathan
Lyczak. This phase of the database
program was built over a period of
several months and specially meets the
needs of MWHS’s report style and
format. The database is also built to
handle enrollment and attendance records, and the next phase of the database Nathan is building will allow HS
transcripts to be generated efficiently
and accurately.
MWHS extends deep gratitude and
appreciation to Nathan for the countless hours of work he has so patiently
and willingly devoted (and continues
to devote), volunteering to carry out
this project. Its positive impact on the
systems, efficiency, and professionalism of the MWHS office is invaluable.
Carol Renzelman, for MWHS faculty,
students, and parents
If your child will be late arriving at
school, please be sure to call the Elementary School Main Office by 8:00

Middle School
As many are aware, last spring the
faculty proposed a new approach to
fundraising for eighth grade class trips.
The goal was to add a cooperative element to fundraising, with sixth and seventh graders having the experience of
raising money to support their schoolmates in eighth grade. Going forward, it
was imagined that each year the eighth
grade trip would be funded by the efforts
of all three middle school classes. Along
with this new, cooperative approach, the
faculty recommended guidelines for the
cost of eighth grade class trips, and discussed the kind of fundraising in which
students should be involved.
Last summer, when Julia Kerr, Tim
Price and I met to plan for the school
year, we had a number of questions to
bring back to our colleagues. We were
supportive of this new cooperative gesture, and needed to clarify details related
to pooling our resources. While all three
classes have been actively fundraising
this fall, the faculty has taken up these
questions, considering ways to refine the
fundraising model that meets the needs
of students, parents, and teachers.
A faculty committee of teachers
(Kevin McGuigan, Maggie Myers, and
myself) was assigned to meet, collect
input, and propose a final working policy
for the current year. As part of our work,
Maggie, Kevin and I asked my fellow
middle school teachers to join us in a
meeting with parents who have been
particularly active in fundraising thus far
in the year. We wanted to hear from
those most directly affected, in many
respects, by a change in policy. Many
thanks to the sixth, seventh and eighth
grade parents who took time on a Saturday morning in December to meet with
us. Their input was invaluable and
touched on a wide range of issues that
we will be taking back to College of
Teachers and Faculty meetings.
I am pleased to say that all parents and
teachers present at our December meeting were supportive of the revisions that
Kevin, Maggie and I have proposed for
this year: in keeping with the cooperative gesture adopted last spring, the sixth
and seventh grades will each pledge a
generous amount toward the cost of the
eighth grade class trip, totaling as much
as $4,000. Funds raised by sixth and
seventh grade classes above and beyond
the pledged amount will be kept by each
grade, respectively, to be used toward
their own trips. There was a general
sense that this modification represents
the best of both approaches, allowing
students to experience both the satisfaction of a generous gift and the excitement of working towards one’s own trip.
It goes without saying that the faculty
will be returning to this policy at the end
of the year to see whether it has proved
to be a positive change. Middle School
parents can expect further information
directly from their child’s class teacher
about fundraising goals and ways to support our collective and individual efforts.
Kevin, Maggie and I are also happy to
field questions about the process and the
modifications adopted for this school
year. We welcome your input.

The Keene Community Kitchen continues to serve meals and make food
boxes available to those in need in our
community. Your contributions make
the Kitchen able to fulfill its mission.
We recently delivered five shopping
bags full of nonperishable food and
personal care items. Thank you!
Now is a great time to help the Community Kitchen with a specific need:
the need for personal care items. The
Kitchen can use soap, deodorant,
toothpaste, tooth brushes, shampoo,
shaving cream, body lotion, combs,
brushes, etc. Please drop these items
in the collection box inside the front

This Week at the High School
Eleventh Grade: The Rise of the West, MWHS 2014: Ar ound 1500, what we call
“the West” began to diverge radically from the rest of the world, which it eventually grew
to dominate politically and economically. Even if some of that power has waned in the
21st century, the western mindset still dominates the cultural tone of the modern era. This
is our culture—we are products of its worldview and totally immersed in its way of thinking. By examining how “the West” came about, can students begin to better understand
Continuing where their Medieval History morning lesson left off, the 11th grade will
broadly survey the development of the West from the 14th c. Black Plague to the 19th c.
Industrial Revolution. They will step back in order to perceive the bigger themes running
through specific events and individuals. We follow four main threads—Philosophy &
Individuality, Science & Exploration, the Arts, Nation & the Common Man—through
overlapping periods of the Reformation, Renaissance, Age of Exploration and Enlightenment. Through many readings from original texts, the students will consider questions the
West posed in its rise to prominence: W here do I stand? W ho is my neighbor? W hat is a
nation? How can we make sense out of the world? What is progress? To better grasp at
the outset what we might mean by “the West,” the block begins with a case study of the
late 20th c. rapid westernization of Ladakh, a remote region of Himalayan India. For final
projects, students create an artistic presentation of one of the many extraordinary individuals they will encounter (from Henry V & Joan of Arc to Mary Wollstonecraft & William
Blake) during the course of this nearly 500 years of history that led to the modern world.
