Senior Project Presentations

The High School Faculty cordially invites students, parents and friends of the school to attend the senior project presentations on Saturday, April 18 at 7:00 pm, Sunday, April 19 at 2:00 pm, Friday, April 24 at 7:00 pm, Saturday, April 25 at 7:00 pm, and Sunday, April 26 at 2:00 pm in the Gymnasium.

The  senior project is an elective at Kimberton. Students interested in doing a project submit a proposal to the project committee in either May of the junior year or in September of the senior year. Each student has a mentor and a faculty advisor to assist with questions and feedback. The goal of the project is to give students an opportunity to show personal initiative and independence while deeply exploring an area of personal interest. The projects are a wonderful opportunity for parents and students to witness the fruits of Waldorf education.

KWS Musical Meeting

Calling all fans of the KWS musical!

The Musical Care Committee is having a community meeting on Thursday, April 30 in the high school library to talk about possibilities for future shows. It certainly takes a community to put on a musical, and there are so many ways that students, parents and other community members can become involved.

We’ve had a wonderful 12 years, and we are looking a minimum of 12 more! In order to help both our students and our director to concentrate on what they need to do, we need help with producing, set-building and painting, costuming, hair and make-up. We all recognize how busy our lives have gotten, and many of our students have a variety of obligations. What can we do to support each other and them? We all know that many hands make light work, but a big job like this needs very many hands!

At 7:00 pm, we will have a wrap up of this year's show with the director and producer. At 7:30, we will begin a conversation about future possibilities including what works, what could be improved and who might like to be involved.

Please come out to share any feedback, thoughts, ideas and hidden talents you may have!

Thank you!

May Faire


The May Faire is an annual celebration of spring, and is a "don't-miss" festival for families with children of all ages. Our community-wide celebration offers many fun events, including Maypole dancing, a puppet show, face painting, hobby horse obstacle course, creating May crowns, the cake walk, perennial plant sale, and a play space for parents and small children. Meet the “Pocket Lady” and pick a small treasure from one of her many pockets! The day ends with the traditional boat race (Kimberton Armada) that sets sail on the French Creek; toy wooden boats will be available for purchase. Admission is free, with delicious food and crafts available for purchase. All are welcome!
