Nevada Sage Waldorf School thrives with strong parent involvement. The relationships among parents, children, and teachers are central to Waldorf education. Active parent participation is essential for the health of our school. The entire quality of school life is enriched and supported by parent involvement. Parent contributions have a direct effect on the classroom by nurturing and supporting our teachers, and helping to create a strong foundation for each classroom.
Family participation is also essential to the school’s commitment to keep tuition costs affordable. We do not have custodians, gardeners, painters or carpenters! All of these tasks and more are filled through the loving support of our community members. Parent involvement also instills in our children a sense of responsibility for their school, and a feeling that it is an extension of their family life.
It is important for parents to deepen their understanding of Waldorf education by:
- Attending Class Meetings, Parent-Teacher Conferences, Parent Council Meetings, and Festivals
- Attending parent education lectures and workshops on aspects of Waldorf education and child development
Parents are urged to share their collective talents in areas that engage their talents and gift:
