Big Love Festival at Musica – February 28
For the second year in a row, Big Love Fest, a free, family-friendly festival celebrating community, creativity, and collaboration, will take place from noon-midnight on all three floors of the Musica Complex (51 East Market Street in Akron) Saturday, February 28.
We are looking for volunteers to staff a children’s activity table at this amazing festival. You can volunteer for a single hour or for multiple hours. To sign up, please click here.
Children of all ages love the magical cookie fairy and boat wish rooms, along with unique crafts, music, and the outdoor medieval catapult. Younger children especially love the face painting, puppet shows, story-telling and the make and take crafts.
The artisan market offers handmade items for young and old. Enjoy a delicious café which offers homemade food and baked goods. Stay and have lunch while the kids play!
The festival takes place at 1791 South Jacoby Rd in Copley, OH. Admission to the event is $2 per person.
Lots of volunteers are needed the day before, day of and night of cleanup. Look to the office windows and also to the Volunteer Opportunity tab on our website for upcoming signs ups to help.
Students in grade 3-5 can bring a friend to school this Monday, October 13th, to experience Waldorf Education first hand. Join us and see the educational philosophy that has caught the attention of the New York Times and CNN.
Children attending bring-a-friend-to-school day, will spend the day with their sponsor friend as a typical Spring Garden Waldorf student. They will shadow their friend in the classroom and experience a regular day, including main lesson and all the day’s subjects.
Students must be registered to attend. Please call 330-666-0574 to register or email Amy Hecky at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our school is supported by the time and talents of many volunteers. The volunteer efforts of our community help to reduce costs, accomplish projects more quickly, and support the festival life of the school. Service hours also help us to demonstrate to foundations and other funders the level of support coming from our parents and friends. Volunteers have supported the maintenance of the building and grounds, the development of the roof project, the hallway lighting project, the Monster Dash, the Children’s Festival, the Mardi Gras Bash, Annual Giving, the Spring Auction, the School Store, and the hot lunch program – just to name a few.
Many parents far exceed the minimum volunteer hours required in the yearly contract. Thank you to the following SGWS families that completed more than 100 volunteers hours last year.
