Being a Mountain Laurel
Waldorf School Parent
Mountain 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.
There are many ways for parents to become involved with the community at Mountain Laurel School. Our active Parent Council meets monthly to support the various functions of the school. Parents help plan and staff festivals and events, provide faculty nourishment at weekly College meetings, serve on the Board of Trustees and on a variety of Board Mandated Committees 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 often find that their offerings become deeply rewarding and meaningful. One of the key goals of Waldorf Education is to help develop creative, thoughtful, socially conscious and engaged citizens. In this regard, our community is active, engaged and thriving.
“The more we are able to integrate parents, inwardly and outwardly, into the lives 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.”
~ Robert Schiappacassee, Director, Waldorf School of Lexington
