Hawthorne Valley School’s seniors present projects online


HARLEMVILLE–Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School (HVS) has announced the Class of 2020 will present their senior projects online, Thursday, May 21 and Friday, May 22 at 7 p.m. each day.

“Each year, our seniors embark on an independent study of an area that interests them as the capstone of their time at Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School. It’s always impressive and inspiring to see the creativity and innovation that is reflected in these projects,” Karin Almquist, HVS school director said in a press release.

Topics for the projects include programming and illustrating an original video game, making fine metal jewelry, renovating a van for outdoor travel, starting an upcycle fashion business, and community food sustainability initiatives, to name a few.

“We are hoping to have a record crowd at these presentations to show these seniors that, despite the many changes to their final year of High School, our community—near and far— will still show up to celebrate their work and cheer them on as they prepare to enter a new time in their lives during a very unusual time in the world,” James Thompson, HVS High School English teacher said in the release.

The presentations will be shown via zoom over two evenings. The virtual doors open at 6:45 p.m. on each day. Visit to access the event.
