Pasadena Waldorf School Welcomes Class of 2027 with Rose Ceremony

first_img Community News On Wednesday, September 9, Pasadena Waldorf School marked the beginning of its 36th year with its annual tradition, the Rose Ceremony. The event celebrates the entrance of the 1st graders from the class of 2027 into the grades. With the entire student body in attendance in front of the historic Scripps Hall on the school’s Mariposa Street campus in Altadena, the new students and their class teacher, Dennis Demanett, received roses from the high school senior class. In previous years, the students have been welcomed into the grades with roses from the 8th grade class. With the opening of the high school in 2012, this year is significant in Pasadena Waldorf School’s history as for the first time, each student in the class of 2016, presented roses to the 1st grade children.In addition to receiving a rose from the high school, the school continues the tradition of pairing a 1st grade student with an 8th grade buddy. Throughout the course of the school year, the 1st and 8th graders will participate in many activities together, including lunches, recess time, and special celebrations. This year’s 8th grade class also received a rose from the 12th grade students, a white rose, to recognize the start of their final year of middle school.The ceremony completes its full circle when the 1st graders return this gesture in the spring. At the end of the school year in June 2016, it will be first graders’ turn to offer a rose to the high school seniors as they graduate and move on to the next chapter in their lives.Pasadena Waldorf School, founded in 1979, is a non-profit independent school serving students from Early Childhood through High School. Waldorf teachers practice the art of education, consciously meeting each developmental stage of the child with a curriculum that has relevance and meaning. The aim is to inspire life-long learning in each student and enable them to fully develop their own unique capacities. Working with the heart, the head, and the hands, students receive an experiential education through an academic curriculum that has breadth and depth, and fully integrates the arts into the learning experience. As part of a worldwide educational movement founded by Rudolf Steiner in 1919, Pasadena Waldorf School offers an inspired education that draws from over 90 years of experience.

Founders backed freedom to worship

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionOn Jan. 20, Paul Deierlein commented that separation between church and state were a good thing because it would keep “each institution functioning fully independently of one another. …”  He quoted John Adams saying that the government of the United States was not “in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.” Where these statements are correct, it would be wise not to conflate a secular government with a secular society. Adams and the founders had experienced the abuses to society wrought by King George because religion and the state were entwined in England. Our First Amendment was intended to prevent such abuses, with a secular government ruling and guiding a religious people. Thomas Jefferson himself worshiped in the “Hall of Representatives” and in the Supreme Court building.Establishment of religion, often called “endorsement” today, was forbidden only to Congress through enacted laws. There was never any prohibition against a display of religion in a statesman.In fact, the same letter mentioning “a wall of separation” has Jefferson admit that he only occasionally presented “performances of devotion, presented indeed legally … but subject here, as religious exercise, only to the voluntary regulations and disciplines of each respective sect “ In other words, he was free to worship subject only to the “disciplines” of his own church.  Adams also said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams, our second president, also served as chairman of the American Bible Society.Dave HartLathamMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesAlbany County warns of COVID increaseEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img read more

House starts deliberation of job creation bill as protesting unions forced to stay at home

first_imgHowever, according to Saan, the House leadership has yet to decide whether the bill will be handled by the House’s Legislation Body (Baleg) or a special House committee (Pansus).Read also: House members lead campaign to donate salary to COVID-19 victims“We’ve suggested that it be handled by the Baleg,” he said.Speaking at the House’s plenary meeting on Monday, Saan said the bill was needed to mitigate the economic impacts of COVID-19. The House of Representatives will begin its deliberation of the controversial omnibus bill on job creation despite the coronavirus pandemic.The secretary of the NasDem Party faction at the House, Saan Mustopa, told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday that the House leadership had agreed to read the presidential letter to begin the bill’s deliberation at a plenary session on Thursday.”Yes, it has been decided in a meeting with the House’s [steering committee] on Wednesday to announce [the deliberation] in the plenary session,” he said, adding that the meeting had also been attended by representatives of all House factions and commissions. “We need to prepare for [economic] recovery […]. We should start deliberating the omnibus bills on job creation and taxation to prepare for the post-outbreak situation. We need to recover quickly,” he said.House Speaker Puan Maharani, who is from Jokowi’s Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), has appeared reluctant to process the bill. Of the six political parties in the government coalition, the PDI-P has been the only one to urge lawmakers not to rush, citing public objections to the bill.Responding to Saan’s statement, Puan said during Monday’s plenary session that the House would focus on emergency measures for COVID-19 at this time.Read also: House ready to support 2020 budget revisions to account for COVID-19Confederation of Indonesian Trade Unions (KSPI) president Said Iqbal said deliberating the omnibus bill at a time like this showed that the lawmakers had no empathy for the people that currently were facing a difficult situation due to the pandemic.He said the House should prioritize the coronavirus handling rather than the omnibus bill.”The omnibus bill is not a solution to the layoff phenomenon following the pandemic. It’s not a solution for Indonesia’s economic growth problem due to the pandemic too. It is clear that the omnibus bill is not being prepared to anticipate COVID-19,” he said.Civil society organizations, major labor unions and student organizations had prepared for street rallies to protest against articles in the omnibus bill on job creation that — if passed — would harm labor rights, the environment and democracy. They also protested against the bill’s less-than-transparent drafting process.center_img Topics :last_img read more
