Kim Raymond, esteemed Waldorf teacher of 33 years, will retire from Haleakala Waldorf School on June 1, 2018 and will be commemorated with a large celebration on Waxman Field of the Kula campus from 12:45 – 2:30pm. Well loved by the community, students, alumni, colleagues and friends are expected to shower her with their well wishes, memories, and photos related to her rich and long-standing career.

Waldorf education is designed to educate the whole child, physically, emotionally and academically with specific learning strategies for each stage of a child’s development. The Pulama Parent-Child program will continue in the 2018-19 school year and will be enrolling students throughout the summer months. For a preview, the school offers bi-monthly Stay & Play programs where parents and their children can experience a morning of early childhood Waldorf education for free. Advance reservations are required as these sessions fill quickly. The next Stay & Play is Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 8:45 – 10:30am at the HWS Kula Campus.
