At the Susquehanna Waldorf School, we employ creative thinkers, motivated doers and people who tackle learning with their heads and their hands.


Dear SWS Community, 

It is with both sadness and a sense of goodwill that we share this news. Our Maria Wherley has decided to step beyond the walls of SWS where she brought her two sons, her talents, and her beautiful presence for so many years. Maria has taken a new position, Network Relationships and Conference Coordinator with PA Downtown in Harrisburg. Her last day with SWS will be July 10th

e are called upon to honor and thank Maria for all she has given to us and to offer her all our best wishes and love! We share this from Maria's letter of resignation:

"I will forever treasure the many gifts - on a multitude of levels - and carry gratitude for the opportunity to experience Waldorf both personally and professionally. I love the school and believe in Waldorf education."

We are beginning our search for a person to lead Admissions (see ad following this message). Please help spread the word of this opening.

Maria is happy to hear from the community so don't hesitate to be in touch!

Blessings on our school,

The Management Team - Melissa, Linda and Deborah
