Build Community - Support the School

We are an inclusive community dedicated to Waldorf education and San Francisco Waldorf School. The student experience is enriched by the committed participation of our parent community who contributes their time and energy in countless ways. The school also works to support parents through lectures, discussions, and parent evenings.

How do parents help?

Parents work behind-the-scenes and in the classroom. They chaperone field trips, coordinate events, raise funds, and serve in leadership roles on the Board of Trustees, Multicultural Council, and other committees.

  • Class Volunteering: Parents help out in the classroom, in the gardens, and on field trips.
  • Events & Fundraising: Parents are instrumental in making school-wide events a success, including Winter Fair, Spring Night, and May Faire. Parents raise funds for the school and serve as Advancement Liaisons.
  • Institutional Service: Parents serve in leadership roles in the Board of Trustees, the Multicultural Council, Parent Guild, and Parent Council.

Parent Guild

Many volunteer efforts are coordinated through the Parent Guild. This group of active and committed parents helps to build community and support the school. All parents are automatically members and encouraged to attend monthly meetings.
