Thank you for an amazing first Crafts Fair for Gathering Waters Chartered Public School!
Our beautiful building at 98 S. Lincoln was buzzing with activity and good cheer this weekend! We could not have done it without the many hands of our community. Thank you to all of the volunteers, faculty, staff, students and vendors that made it possible. Also, a warm shout-out to all of our wonderful neighbors that allowed space for vendor parking.

Parent Council Corner
The Gathering Waters Charter Parent Council is dedicated to being a resource for parent voices in the Gathering Waters Community. Our focus is on volunteerism, open communication, and providing a welcoming space for all parents.
First Friday Coffee Hour (12/3)
Save the date! We are moving inside to our beautiful assembly room at the Upper School for our next coffee hour.

Please consider joining us for coffee, treats and conversation Friday, 12/3 immediately after drop-off at 31 Washington St. (The space is large enough to appropriately distance. Masks can be removed briefly to eat and drink, but required at all other times.)
Join us at our next meeting on December 9 where we will set aside time to talk about the Second Grade Curriculum and work toward more community building activities.
Here is the link to the next podcast episode we will be discussing:

GW Basketball!
We are excited to launch the Gathering Waters Winter
Basketball Program! 

This winter season we will have full Upper School basketball teams that include 6-9th graders. Upper School families, look for the registration email from Mr. Goodwin.

At Gathering Waters we follow an everyone plays approach to the sports program. In our Waldorf school we believe that every student is an artist, an actor, a writer, a scientist and an athlete. It is our goal to create the opportunity and environment for that innate ability to emerge. Every student who wishes to play sports will be on the Gathering Waters team. We also believe in healthy competition, and when we play games we will play to win, not simply participate. Students will learn the valuable lessons of perseverance, "sportsmanship," and of course, failure. Most importantly, the student-athletes will be active and have fun!
Clothing Swap
We will be holding the clothing swap Friday, December 10th, 3:30 - 6pm and
Saturday 11th, 10 am- 1pm.

Bring in your gently used clothing (winter/warm season preferred) Monday 12/6 through Friday 12/10 in the Lower School main office and come and "shop" on the 10th or 11th!
