Families are a crucial part of building the school community and WCS. There are many ways that parents can get involved in school life and culture.
Families are encouraged to contribute 30 hours per year, per child as volunteers. Details on volunteer opportunities are available in our Parental Involvement Policy and on our volunteer page.
Families are encouraged to learn about Waldorf education, attend workshops and parent evenings, and incorporate the principles of rhythm and healthy development which can support home and family life. Attendance at workshops and events may be counted as volunteer hours, when advertised as such.
Families are welcome to attend regularly scheduled public tours of the school (typically offered on Wednesday mornings) to ask questions and make general observations regarding instruction and methods.
Classroom observations and volunteer experiences must be arranged with the teacher in charge (either class teachers or specialty teachers) in advance.
