Parents

Mountain Laurel Waldorf School, New Paltz, New YorkMountain Laurel Waldorf School is an independent school, supported entirely by tuition and contributions.  Parents provide vital assistance not only through their economic contributions but through their countless hours of volunteer effort.  For example, a large group of parents remodeled a wing of the school building, creating new office space and a performance and meeting area large enough to accommodate the entire student body.  Other parents participate in phonathons for the Annual Fund, assist the administrative office, help plan festivals and events, clean the school building, or become involved in a multitude of other support roles.

All these activities provide a fine example of service and community life for our children.  Parents who offer their time and talents to the school ofen find that their offerings become deeply rewarding and meaningful.

The more we are able to integrate parents, inwardly and outwardly, into the live of our schools, the more our schools will have the warmth, life, and light, as well as the strength, to grow in vigorous and healthy ways. –
