What does AWS have in common with bacteria? Adaptability! Bacteria continue to proliferate, adapt and morph even in the face of modern medicine. They are amazing microorganisms, adapting to almost any threat and emerging stronger as a result. In its almost 30 year history, AWS has met many challenges and, as a result, it has become more streamlined, more nimble, and more efficient.

Dave Hall participated in the 5th graders' 2013 Southeastern Waldorf Olympics as a chaperone. In this excerpt from his blog post he writes about how the experience went beyond his expectations

The Connection between Arts and Academics

“Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences gained credibility in the 1980s, but Steiner’s Waldorf curriculum had already put the gist of that theory into practice by 1920! Students learn in different ways. It’s not rocket science and yet, most common educational methods ignore this basic premise. What Steiner knew was that DOING was the key to learning..."
