Annual Spring Gala
CWS is proud to host an annual Spring Gala with exciting live and silent auctions, local live entertainment, and spectacular food and drinks! Our parent volunteers strive before, during and after to support the efforts necessary to make this event so special. This year’s event is titled the Moonlight Ball and features a 1920′s theme on Saturday, March 22, 2014. To get involved, donate to our auctions or simply attend this fabulous event, please contact Sarah von Thomsen.
The Parent Association offers many simple, effective ways to help raise money for CWS. From saving Boxtops to ordering magazine subscriptions, holiday greenery and student artwork. The CWS Parent Association has many committees that volunteer their time to organize the annual Holiday Faire & May Faire.
The Parent Association also runs the Scrip Card program. This program lets you purchase pre-paid cards for area merchants, with a percentage going to benefit the school. There is no additional cost to you. For more information about our Scrip program, please contact our PA Scrip Coordinator.
The Cincinnati Waldorf School’s Board of Trustees’ responsibilities include providing support and aid to the faculty in implementing a Waldorf educational program, to authorize major business and financial decisions, to appoint chairs and members of standing committees and to adopt the budget for the Cincinnati Waldorf School. CWS’ Board of Trustees are a diverse group of people from inside and outside of the school community.
The CWS has needs both great and small. If you are able to make any of these wishes come true for our school, please contact the school’s Administrative Team Leader.
