Woodland Star School

Our Vision

Woodland Star has developed a powerful educational vision that incorporates Waldorf education methods and embraces the developmental model of the unfolding child. This education, built on a strong academic foundation, also brings forth creative imagination, critical thinking, self-confidence, and a sense of delight, wonder and respect for nature and humanity.

Woodland Star provides an innovative public-school alternative for Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. The school opened in fall 2000.

Welcome Back ~ The first day of school is Wednesday, August 20th

Campus Work Days – Saturday, Aug. 16th & Saturday, Aug. 17, 9-3 pm. Please Come Help!

Teachers really need parents’ help settling into new classrooms as well as helping with landscape and garden maintenance.  Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 16th and/or Sunday, August 17th from 9 until 3. It is great to have a full crew in attendance as many hands make light work.  Please plan to join us for as many hours as you can on these all-important workdays as we complete classroom and campus set-up. Bring your tools and elbow grease!  If you have any questions, please contact Parent Hub chair John Arntz: jwarntz@pacbell.net.


First Day of School Wednesday, August 20th

Our first day is Wednesday, August 20th. To ease the reentry, this day and the following Thursday and Friday are all short days, with dismissal at 1:00 PM. On the first Friday, August 22nd at 8:45 AM on the outdoor stage, we will hold our assembly and Rose Ceremony welcoming the new First Grade. Please note this is a date change from our typical opening day assembly.  We look forward to allowing our students a few days to settle in before participating in the all-school assembly.  On Friday, children will report to their respective classrooms at 8:15, and we encourage parents to stay and join us for coffee in the middle school garden before the 8:45 assembly.  If you attend the assembly, please give your full attention to the moment and, please, leave your cameras at home. We will have a school photographer on duty capturing the event and will make photos available to parents. Thank you!
