Waldorf School Winter Faire

A few weeks ago we attended the Susquehanna Waldorf School's Winter Festival where we found...

The winter nature table welcomes all at the main entrance

School hallways cheery and bright

A little shop for children to purchase gifts for friends and family

Fun games and prizes for children.

The upper grades made special tree decorations

Sweet needle felted hedgehog ornaments

Ornaments that encouraged our wanderlust

Made by an 8th grade student

A tree decorated by the parents who made colorful paper ornaments


A shop with tempting toys for girls...
and boys of all ages.
Instruments waiting for little hands to make music
And a very happy boy enjoying the open-ended playground.


  1. Oh, this makes me miss the Susquehanna Waldorf School so much! We went to the Winter Faire here and it just wasn't the same. SWS was always so open to the community and to homeschoolers. Your post actually made me tear up a little but it also made me happy to see the school again. Thank you!

  2. How nice to see these photos. I used to live in Marietta and wrote an article for the now defunct Columbia News when the school first moved to Marietta. It is a small world.
