Mayfair 2013

It was a glorious day — the sun was shining, the birds were singing, and the students of Cape Ann Waldorf School were ready for the annual Mayfair.  All week long, you could hear humming and whistling in the hallways; the songs are certainly infectious.  At 1pm, students walked down to the Lower Field to begin their procession. Mr. Macdonald leading the second grade. Mrs. Babcock and the first grade. Mrs. Nevin and Mr. Yoors with the third grade. and the rest of the grades The traditional Maypole dance The less traditional Maypole “spider web”! Watch below for how the web was unwoven. Look how well the 4th and 5th graders work together!   The third grade dancing to “The Shepherd’s Hey.” Hoping to be picked by the hen as the “May King” Friends  ...

A Musical Visit

Musician David Coffin came to CAWS recently to present “Music from the King’s Court: Exploring the Early Winds.” He was quite pleased when he asked who played the recorder and every student raised his/her hand.  CAWS students play various recorders in grades 1-8, adding a stringed intrument (violin, viola, or cello) in 3rd grade.  To hear the instruments he played, please visit his very cool web site here.  ...
