NO BURRITOS TOMORROW, Thursday, February 16
There will be no burritos tomorrow.
We had heard that there might be an action tomorrow regarding the current status of immigrants in this country, and we inquired with Bueno y Sano who informed us that they will be closed tomorrow.  More information about the national movement for a strike tomorrow is available here in Spanish (or translate with google translate). http://fusion.net/story/386780/el-movimiento-un-dia-sin-inmigrantes-se-esta-esparciendo-por-todo-estados-unidos/

We know we also missed a day last week with the snow days.  We hope to double up with a couple Mondays to come, but that is pending confirmation from Bueno y Sano, so we can’t announce the dates quite yet.  It is possible that the first one may be for the Monday returning from break,staye tuned and read your emails over break!
Thank you!

There have been changes in several events due to SNOW,  GLORIOUS SNOW! Please see details below:

UPDATE – CHANGE OF DATE  
High School Coffee House, March 4, 6:30 pm
Each year to lighten up the dark winter the high school students and faculty get together to share some fun. The coffee house is a faculty and student only event where students get to enjoy the faculty letting down their hair in skits, dances and songs. Students come up with a theme, decorate the assembly room and gather snacks to share. Often they may invite a friend from another school. 

UPDATE – CHANGE OF DATE
High School Showcase, March 7, 6:30 pm
Our next parent meeting is on March 7 and it will be a High School Showcase. Students will be presenting work across the grades in music, arts and languages. This is a great opportunity to invite a friend or relative who is interested in seeing Waldorf education in action. Students will probably need to arrive at school for the evening a little earlier than 6:30 but details for students about this event will be communicated to students after the break.
