“Not only does the state of fully developed Creative Intelligence fulfill the overall purpose of man’s craving for greater happiness, it also brings the mind naturally to the highest degree of mental development. It brings an individual to a state where, by virtue of a high development of mental strength and harmony with the laws of nature, he finds that his thoughts naturally become fulfilled without much effort on his part. An individual in this state has given such a natural pattern to his existence, that he enjoys the full support of nature for life. He is in direct attunement with the field of pure Creative Intelligence, which forms the basis of all the laws of nature.” --Maharishi


Dear Parents,


The first quarter ends on Thursday, October 26. Friday, October 27 is a grading day for teachers, so there will be no school. Please remind your child that all outstanding fees, fines, rentals and library books are due by Thursday.


Middle School parent conferences will take place on Friday, November 3. Beginning Tuesday, October 24, please call the Girls School office (whether your child is a boy or a girl) to schedule appointments with your child’s teachers (472-9400 ext. 3).

Grade cards will be given out in the auditorium on that day. Please note that grade cards will not be mailed out this quarter, so please come and pick up your child’s grade card that day.


Upper School parents are invited to Parents’ Night on Wednesday, November 8. This will be an opportunity to meet your child’s second quarter teachers.

After a brief meeting in the Henry Ogden Clark Auditorium (where we cover some general points that apply to this level of the School) parents go from classroom to classroom, following the students’ schedule. The meeting begins at 7:45 p.m.

Grade cards will be given out at this meeting. Please note that grade cards will not be mailed out this quarter, so please come and pick up your child’s grade card at this meeting.


Many of you might have enjoyed the delicious Sunday brunches at the Goodale’s farm this summer. Christine Goodale is a wonderful cook, creating all kinds of scrumptious all-organic culinary delights. We’re delighted that Christine will be hosting a Sunday brunch once a month to benefit Dharma.

These will be in the Henry Ogden Clark Auditorium from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m. Dates of forthcoming Sunday brunches are November 5 and December 3.


The 9th grade girls will be performing a flute recital at a Maharishi Gandharva Veda concert this coming Sunday evening, October 22. Pandit Binay Krishna Baral, the flute teacher at M.U.M. and Maharishi School, and students from M.U.M. will also be performing.

The concert starts at 8:05 p.m. in the Maharishi Concert Hall, Building 151. Admission is $15 general, $10 with a valid Dome badge, and $5 for M.U.M. and Maharishi School students, faculty, and staff.


The entrepreneurial seventh grade girls are meeting their fundraising goal by selling beautiful “Invincible America” T-shirts. They are pure cotton and short sleeved. T-shirts are available in front of the Domes each evening, outside Everybody’s, or by calling 472-8750.

Sizes are small, medium, large, and extra large. The price is $15 each, or two for $25. Checks are payable to Maharishi School. Supplies are limited.


The Varsity soccer team won the first round of their play-off with an exciting overtime win over Scattergood this week. The game was tied 1-1 at the end of overtime, and went into a penalty kick playoff. The Pioneers were down 3-1 with two kicks left. In order to win, they had to make two more kicks and stop one of the opposing team’s. Thanks to two great stops by Owen Blake and amazing kicks by Mehul Kar and Owen Stowe, the Pioneers won the day.

Today (Friday) they play at 4:00 p.m. against Walnut Ridge at IMS. On Saturday the winner plays at 2:00 p.m. and the loser at 12 noon; both at IMS.

Congratulations to the Junior High soccer team on coming in second at their tournament last Saturday.

Last Monday the Varsity volleyball girls played the first round of the district tournament against the #1 team in the state, Holy Trinity. Even though the Pioneers did not win, they played extremely well, and we were proud of their performance.

The Volleyball season has ended. The basketball season starts November 6.   


This Sunday evening, October 22, 51 new Sidhas will be graduating from the CIC flying block. Among them are seven Maharishi School students and one teacher. This brings the number of Maharishi School students in the Domes to 16 girls and 25 boys.

The graduation celebration will start at 8:15 p.m. in the Henry Ogden Clark Auditorium. Our congratulations to the new Sidhas!


Maharishi School alum, Tyler Cleveland, is playing in a “challenger” tournament in California this week. He had a great win over Donald Young, an up-and-coming US tennis star.


At the end of the quarter all lost and found items will be taken to My Lucky Day. Please ask your child to check the various lost and found locations for any items belonging to him/her.


Best Wishes,

Laurie Baumann and Alan Colby
