Supporting your child in a Waldorf education
You have chosen to give your child the gift of attending A.M. Winn Waldorf K-8 Public School. As you know, a Waldorf education focuses on the whole child and encourages them to reach their full creative potential. A.M. Winn is a nurturing and loving environment with a team of teachers, staff and volunteers that focus on the healthy development of each child. A.M. Winn Waldorf K-8 Public School offers a balanced curriculum which includes activities of the head, heart, and hands. The cognitive, artistic, and practical lessons are designed to develop the capacities that reflect individual students’ experiences. The children’s wills and temperaments are honored as the whole child is educated. This environment comes with a time and financial cost. Read below to find out how you can support your child’s education at A.M. Winn.
Classroom Waldorf Materials Donation
Each family is asked to contribute toward the materials fund by donating $100 per child which is tax deductible. This covers Waldorf materials such as: main lesson books, beeswax block and stick crayons, modeling beeswax and clay, colored pencils, watercolor paints, brushes, calligraphy pens and paper. These supplies are an integral part of a Waldorf curriculum. These materials are of high quality, and help your child to create beautiful work that they can take pride in. (Please note that the Materials Donation is separate from the Annual Giving Campaign.)
A.M. Winn Community Guild Annual Giving Campaign
The Annual Giving Campaign is the foundation of A.M. Winn Community Guild’s fundraising effort. Every year we ask that families donate a tax deductible lump sum or a tax deductible payment plan to the Guild. The suggested amount is $50 per child. These funds directly pay for A.M. Winn’s Waldorf specialty programs such as: Movement, Music, Handwork, Woodwork and Athletics. This funding also provides classroom and campus upgrades. The goal of the Annual Giving Campaign is 100% participation, so our Waldorf Specialty Programs can be fully funded. We realize that families in our community have different financial situations. If the suggested amount does not work for you, give what you can. Our goal is to have 100% of our families participate at whatever level that works with your financial situation. Families are always welcome to sponsor another child attending A.M. Winn by donating extra funds, with the knowledge that it is also tax deductible.
