WWS offers a variety of adult education opportunities throughout the school year. Most of these focus on the Waldorf curriculum and child development, but we also offer include film screenings, lectures on pertinent topics of interest by outside experts, workshops, and more. While many of these events are primarily directed at parents, they generally are of wider interest, and anyone who is interested is welcome to attend. Most events are free.
The best sources of information on upcoming adult education events are our weekly bulletin and the online calendar available on our website. We look forward to seeing you.
Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience
Wednesday, Nov 13 at 7pm
On Nov 13, WWS will host a screening of the new, highly acclaimed film "Screenagers: Next Chapter" in the WWS Library. Filmmaker and physician Dr. Delaney Ruston takes the conversation around screens and teens to the next level in this film by examining the science behind teens' emotional challenges, the interplay of social media, and (most importantly) what can be done in our schools and homes to help them build crucial skills to navigate stress, anxiety, and depression in our digital age.
