WINTER FAIRE: December 1, 2018, 12 noon to 4 pm
This delightful celebration of the season is a wonderful school and community event. A fun family day, we offer crafts, handmade items from our talented parents and students, a vendor area with a nice selection of mostly handmade items and the Starlight Cafe for a snack. We also have musical performances and plenty of time to hang out with friends. A highlight of this event is the Children’s Store where your child can go shopping and purchase holiday gifts (often made by parents and friends) for as little as $.50. The line is always long and the anticipation great as they wait for a chance to enter this magical place that has been lovingly decorated to resemble a fairy forest (complete with fairy lights). No parents are allowed inside. Children are greeted by an adult that will help them with their shopping. This event has become an important fundraiser due to the hard work of the coordinator and volunteers in the last few years. It brings in about $10,000 towards our fundraising goals.

WHOLE WORLD FESTIVAL: May 2, 2019, 12 noon to 3 pm
This springtime event brings the community together to celebrate the diversity that makes our school great. There are musicians and performers representing countries from around the world as well as crafts, games and delicious food. Vendors are invited to sell their cultural wares. The event is held under the beautiful shade of the Alice Birney Oak trees and ends with a children’s parade. A nominal fee is charged by the food booths to cover the cost of food items. The remainder of the event is complimentary. For more information on this, please contact Sacha Monpere (Social Activities Coordinator) at alicebirneywaldorf@gmail.com.
