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.
We are pleased to announce that our Early Childhood program is expanding to accommodate the growing interest in Waldorf education in Northeast Ohio!
We have a healthy waiting pool of applicants for our Early Childhood program for the 2016-17 school year, and the Administrative Faculty has made the decision to expand our Early Childhood program in two areas to accommodate the needs of our community.
We will be growing in the following ways:
- We will create an additional Nursery Preschool room for 3- and young 4-year-olds on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. This room will have one lead teacher and six students. The other Nursery Preschool room will have one lead teacher, one assistant, and 12 students.
- We will add a third afternoon room on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays to accommodate the increased number of full day students in our Early Childhood program.
If you have any questions about this growth, please feel welcome to contact me. We will begin the hiring process and we look forward to introducing you to the teachers. If you have friends or family who are considering SGWS for their young children, please share the good news and have them contact Amy Hecky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
