Gala Teacher Wishlist for 2019

Our amazing teachers do SO MUCH for our children so here is our chance to fulfill a few of their wishes for the 2019-2020 school year.

Early Years: $1,500 A natural, curated environment adds to a child’s sense of wonder, exploration and overall learning. Help fund enhancements to our Early Years’ outdoor play spaces.

Literature: $2,000 Classroom libraries are an important aspect in providing a literacy rich environment. Help purchase reading books to be used for building classroom libraries across the grades.

Outdoor Lockers: $4,000 We will have 25% more students in our high school next year! Increased growth means that we need more classroom space. Outdoor lockers will allow us to better utilize classroom space and more comfortably accommodate our students.

Additional Laptops: $5,000 Waldorf high school students use laptops in their classes for a variety of learning tasks. With growing class sizes, we need more computers!

Sports Equipement: Students in all grades participate in a variety of sports during their recess breaks. A hoop behind the Field House will allow more students to play basketball and a bin of various balls and equipment will ensure that a variety of games can be played.
