PARENT COUNCIL

Open to current families at The Denver Waldorf School, Parent Council generates enthusiastic participation in the life of the school by creating opportunities for parents to enrich their own lives.

Parent Council cultivates community and provides parents with access to the greater school community and governing bodies through the information, planning, and communication shared quarterly meetings and various activities.

2020-2021 Goals

Each year, two co-chairs will determine the focus of the Parent Council, which could include, but is not limited to: parent education, community events, school fundraising, decorating, and external philanthropic projects.

  • Hold Zoom meetings with the parent community to facilitate discussion within each section of the school.
  • Regularly share articles with the parent community to raise awareness as to the relevance of a Waldorf Education in modern times.
  • Class reps will make phone calls to the families in their class to connect and check-in twice throughout the year, in an effort to maintain community connection during COVID.
  • In-person community events have been paused for this COVID year.
  • Classes will provide faculty and staff with packaged goodies once/month to uplift morale and show our appreciation
  • Collaborate with Advancement Coordinator to see how we might support fundraising efforts specifically during COVID year.
  • Co-chairs will attend AWSNA Parent Council Zoom meetings as often as possible to collaborate and share with other Waldorf Schools around other Parent Council initiatives.
