SGWS Hosts Akron Children’s Card Booth at First Night

»Posted by on Dec 29, 2014 in School News | 0 comments

EarlyChildhoodConcentrationChildren 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.

Scholarship for Alumnus Aramay Moss  

»Posted by on Dec 10, 2014 in Alumni, School News | 0 comments

AramayMossOur 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.

Congratulations Aramay!

BridgingTheGapImageHeaderEVERY gift is important.

Tax-deductible gifts to the annual fund go directly toward teachers’ salaries, facility needs, classroom supplies, and tuition aid.

Spring Garden relies on gifts from the annual giving campaign to make up the difference between tuition and the actual cost of educating our students.  That gap is $600 per student.

We are asking that you help us bridge this gap with your tax deductible donation.  Click to Donate Today.
