As you may know, or may have learned recently when we dropped a note in your mailbox, 30 hours of volunteering is required from each of our families. Part of those hours must come from a collective work day at the school. Work days are our most effective way to accomplish larger scale projects. They also help project planning and completion, help build community, and show the children what’s involved in supporting the school. Many hands make light work.
Here is the upcoming 2015 Work Day schedule.

We are delighted to announce that we have hired a new Spanish teacher! Trista White, pronounced (Treesta), is a recent graduate of the University of Akron, with degrees in Spanish and Spanish Education. She has been student teaching at various local high schools and elementary schools, and she is very excited to begin working with SGWS students.
Children at First Night can make cards for Children at Akron Children’s Hospital. Spring Garden Waldorf School will host a Children’s Hospital Card booth at First Night Akron in the John S. Knight Center from 6-9 p.m. on New Year’s Eve. At the booth, children and their parents can decorate the outside of cards with a variety of fun materials to give to patients at Akron Children’s Hospital.
Those patients, in turn, will use the cards as craft material as they make cards for friends, family and hospital staff. A coordinator of volunteer services at Akron Children’s Hospital said that January is a fairly quiet month for the children who are patients, and the cards will bring much-needed joy while allowing for the patients to interact with others. It’s truly a gift that keeps on giving!
Stop by Exhibit Hall 1 at The John S. Knight Center, the Spring Garden Waldorf School Booth, and make a card on New Year’s Eve to brighten a child’s day.

Our own Aramay Moss spent the summer in NYC on scholarship to Barnard College’s early college program. She spent four weeks living in the big apple, taking classes at Barnard, and getting some amazing references from her teachers for college applications.
“Aramay was one of the strongest writers in the class and it was a pleasure to read her work throughout the course. When it came to class discussion, Aramay distinguished herself as a class leader in both examination of outside reading and peer work.” – Instructor, Jill Di Donato
Now Ms. Moss is doing the post secondary program at Akron University as a Firestone High School Junior — taking all college classes and getting joint credit.
