We are incredibly excited and privileged to be hosting Bob Monsen from the Institute for Social Renewal! He will be here March 8th and 9th working with the entire school community to help us move towards our commitment to depth, vitality, and energy for TWS and its future. He has helped over 27 Waldorf schools over the past 20 years turn around financially --- we are looking forward to benefiting from his wisdom and suggestions! All TWS parents are strongly encouraged to attend.
Enrollment for all grades and early childhood will begin in March. We are looking at a strong future for our school and growth in our community!
ADVANCEMENT / FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE
MEETING: FEB. 26TH at 9am. ALL ARE WELCOME!
What does Advancement mean? It is all of the work that we do to move the school forward, including fundraising, community outreach, advertising, enrollment drives, and anything that helps us share the excellence of our school with the outside world while advancing our mission to provide the best education possible for our children.
Our spring fundraising drive is getting underway! TWS will be reaching out, not only to the school community, but also to our friends and supporters everywhere for funding support of our operations and expansion. Each member of the Board and Faculty has committed to donating at least $20, and we are asking every family to do the same! If you are able to donate more -WONDERFUL! If you are unable to donate $20 at this time - NO PROBLEM, BUT PLEASE DO DONATE WHAT YOU CAN.
This spring our goal is 100% participation by TWS families!
