We are currently conducting a survey to connect with our alumni — to learn what they’re doing, what they’re passionate about, and which of their experiences at Spring Garden Waldorf School have continued to have an impact on their lives over the years. If you did not receive an invitation via email, you can take the survey here.
Though we do collect personal data such as addresses and email addresses, this information will be used for internal purposes only and will be separated from the data prior to data analysis. Your answers to survey questions will be analyzed to identify trends, and the information you provide will allow us to be reflective about our work as well as to speak honestly and accurately to prospective families and other members of the Waldorf community about how our students fare in high school and beyond.
The survey has options for alumni who are 18 years or older, alumni who are under 18, and parents of alumni. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
The survey will remain open through early June. We’re grateful to those alumni who have responded already, and we look forward to hearing from more of you!
Check out these wonderful works of art that we will sell Saturday at our live auction!
These class projects bring parents and students of each class together to support the school through a creative, valuable endeavor. The creative works that come out of these collaborations are truly priceless, not only by design, but by the spirit all bring to the task.
The effort and care brought to these projects shows. We hope you’ll bid, in person or by proxy, on one of these priceless works to help you forever remember your child’s elementary school experience at Spring Garden.

At this year’s 27th Annual Benefit Auction, April 23rd at Greystone Hall, Spring Garden Waldorf School will honor and award an alumni who has made a difference and brought about positive change in the world. This award, “The Waldorf Difference”, is being given to Akron native and Commarke President, James Herold, for his contributions to the Akron business community as well as his commitment to giving back to SGWS as a volunteer basketball coach.
James is a recent graduate of the University of Akron and startup executive at Commarke Marketing Agency here in Akron, OH, which specializes in target marketing to the Millennial demographic. James is also giving directly back to the Spring Garden community as a volunteer in our athletic department as a basketball coach for our young men’s Jaguar team. Jim has given our students positive mentoring, interactions, and actions worthy of imitation for our students.
James graduated from Spring Garden Waldorf School in 2005 and still remembers the influence of his teacher, Theo Michaels, and his Waldorf education.
“My Waldorf education curated my ability to find a distinct sense of what is new or individual about a client’s business, which then allows me to creatively approach their marketing needs. I attribute how I work through Commarke – developing unique ideas and out of the box thinking – to my time at SGWS.”
We are pleased to honor James Herold at this year’s Spring Garden Annual Auction Benefit at Greystone Hall as our The Waldorf Difference Award Winner.
