MWS continues to recycle all toner cartridges and cell phones, just bring them to either office.  Storage is easier if toner boxes are recycled at home.  Thank you!

Once again we have the possibiltiy of MWS family skating at the Falmouth Family Ice

on Friday afternoons from 1:40 to 2:40 beginning January 14 through March 28.
For those families new to the MWS Community, this is a fun way to get to know other

families and is very much anticipated by the children. I have been in contact with the

Falmouth Family Ice Arena and they very much would like to have us back for this year.
There are several ways to participate:
A discounted lump sum for the season for you and your family to skate every Friday
A ' pay as you go' sum for you and your family to skate whenever you can make it
A single child rate either as a lump sum for the season or as he/she can make it if your child will be joining another family to skate
Unfortunately, I do not know the exact rates yet as it depends on how many families express interest; however, the rental rate for the rink is $200 per hour so, 10 weeks of skating equals $2000 for the season.

Last year, the costs were as follows:
The cost per family for all 10 weeks was $100
The cost per single child for all 10 weeks was $50
The cost for a family to drop-in on any week was $13 per drop-in
The cost for a single child to drop-in was $7 per drop-in
If you and your family are interested, or if you have questions, please emailc or call me as soon as you can so that I can get all the details ironed out. I will leave envelopes in both Lisa and Deeda's offices for checks. Please make your checks out to me, Christine Byrne, because the rink does not want to deal with cashing many individual checks. I will do that for them and hand over a lump sum. We need $2000 to pay for the 10 weeks so those that can commit to the full season of skating would be greatly appreciated; however, those that would rather not commit, you are still so very welcome to come skate on a drop-in basis.

Circa Home and Vintage (and Tonya Sattin, mother of Dash and Zella) would like to thank you all for the tremendous support at the Fall Fair. It was a fantastic experience and I was so happy to meet new friends and to show the school community the Waldorf-inspired toys, books, and art supplies I carry at my shop. Many of you were pleased to find you could purchase beautiful Waldorf dolls (for example) locally.
I'd like to extend to our school community 10% off at Circa Home and Vintage every day, on any purchase. Simply let us know who you are when checking out and we'll make it happen.
Additionally, at this time of the year, I get many requests from parents hoping I'll make deliveries straight to school. I'm happy to do this for you! Call or email me with your order and we'll meet up after drop-off in the parking lot.
Thank you, Tonya, Circa Home and Vintage, 247B Congress Street, Portland
