Back-to-School Night 2023

Or, should we say Parents Night Out?! B2SN is back, and it's better than ever!

Please join us for a fun and fabulous Back-to-School Night at the Cincinnati Waldorf School! This year's event features important back-to-school information, classroom visits, plus a chance to socialize and eat dinner together. Enjoy food from Red Sesame and a sweet treat from StreetPops, or feel free to bring your own eats!

You'll also have a chance to browse our new collection of CWS Spiritwear, shop for gently used outdoor gear at the PA's Gear Swap, get your raffle ticket for a chance to win from a selection of great prizes, and see old friends and make new ones!

Here are a few important reminders for the evening:

  • This is a PARENT/ADULT ONLY event. (Babes in arms are always welcome.)

  • This event will begin with a brief program in the GYM, followed by visits to classrooms and a chance to meet Chef Alexis and our After Care team. The rest of the event will be held outside, weather permitting.

  • Some dinner seating will be available, but feel free to bring a picnic blanket or chairs if you want to make sure you'll have a place to sit.

  • If you're planning to come, take a second to RSVP to help us prepare.

We look forward to seeing YOU at Back-to-School Night 2023!

New this Year! Red Sesame Food Truck

If you've never had Red Sesame, you're in for a treat! Voted Cincinnati's Best Food Truck in 2018, 2019, 2022, and 2023, BJ Kim's unique fusion of Korean BBQ and Mexican cuisines has earned Red Sesame a devoted fan base. On B2SN, you'll have a choice to purchase tacos, a bowl, or a quesadilla. Gluten free and vegan options available! So, come hungry 🌮

Also New! Gourmet Popsicles from StreetPops

You'll need a taste of something sweet to follow up dinner, right?! Well, we've got you covered with gourmet, small-batch popsicles from StreetPops! Be sure to leave room for dessert so that your taste buds can be tantalized by owner Sara Bornick's delightful and often unexpected flavors. Gluten free and vegan options available.

And, best of all, 50% of your StreetPops purchase goes directly to CWS!!

Meet Chef Alexis and Sample the CWS School Lunch

If you're tired of packing lunch — or would love for your child to have a hot, homemade meal instead — Chef Alexis has got you covered. This year she'll be offering a healthy school lunch featuring organic, seasonal, local ingredients 5 days a week!

Last year's lunches got rave reviews from faculty and students, but don't take our word for it — Chef Alexis will be offering samples for parents to try on B2SN. Swing by between 5:30-6pm and have a bite, meet Chef Alexis, and get the scoop on CWS School Lunch!

Stop By and Meet the CWS After Care Team

Want to meet the people who will be caring for your child during the upcoming school year? Or maybe you're interested in learning more about how you can take advantage of After Care's new, flexible option to book online by the day whenever you need it?

CWS After Care is an amazing option for working parents AND for families looking for a fun, enriching way for their kids to spend time after school. During B2SN you can stop by and visit with the CWS After Care Team in the After Care room from 5:30-6pm or at their table outside from 6-8pm. Be sure to say hi and get all the info you need about CWS After Care!

Get Your Kids "Geared Up" with the PA's Gear Swap!

Seasoned Waldorf families know the importance of having the right gear for all weather and seasons at a school where kids spend LOTS of time outside rain, snow, or shine.

You'll find shoes, boots, rain gear, hats, gloves, coats, base layer items, and more. Plus, you'll support the CWS Parent Association with your purchase. Score! Gear Swap accepts cash and Venmo 💰
