New logo recognizes school’s 40th anniversary and new high school

Haleakala Waldorf School has developed a new logo in recognition of its 40th anniversary and its expansion into a high school, which will open this fall for the 2013-14 school year.

The new logo features a path leading up Haleakala toward the sun.

“We wanted a logo that would honor our history and traditions, reflect our core values and characteristics, and tell our story,” said Administrative Chair of School Jocelyn Romero Demirbag. “We worked closely with our faculty and with graphic designer Danoucha Reynon to develop the concept.”

Reynon is an alumna of Haleakala Waldorf.

The image of the sun uses the school’s athletic uniform emblem of the silversword, endemic to Haleakala. Each triangle is a unified expression of the school’s three divisions: early childhood, grades 1-8, and high school. Together the spiraling triangles reflect the geometry and powerful forms found in nature, as well as the school’s values of beauty, truth and goodness, according to a news release.

“Our theme for the 2012-13 school year is Nana i ke Kumu, or Look to the Source, and this logo represents our forward movement and evolution as well as an honoring of our roots and foundation” said Demirbag.

Haleakala Waldorf School is an accredited independent school serving children from infancy through high school that seeks to develop well-rounded individuals who have the ability to meaningfully connect with other people and the world around them.
