Time, Talent, and Volunteering

In order for the school to be a success, it requires the support of the entire community, and at the Cincinnati Waldorf School, there is always something going on. Consider giving CWS your time and talent by reaching out here or attending an upcoming PA meeting or gathering.

Everyone has a role to play in making our school thrive! 

Parent/guardian role is

  • Commit to your child’s development (academically, emotionally, socially, etc)

  • Stay informed: read WW every Friday, connect with & support your class teacher, help rebuild your class community (group texts, host play dates and attend gatherings)

  • Help us use resources wisely, maintain the budget and reconnect our incredible community by volunteering throughout the school year. 

CWS celebrates 50 years of Waldorf Education in Cincinnati!
