WE GROW GREAT TEACHERS!
and Great Teachers Grow Joyful, Creative Kids.
Why do we need to fundraise?
Winterberry Parent Guild's mission "to support the Winterberry Charter School and its teachers for the betterment of the children attending the School." directly supports the raising of funds for Waldorf teacher training and other school needs. We also supplement program needs (such as uniforms, sewing machines, etc...) to cover gaps in funding.
We have on-going educational needs for our teachers who change grades each year (and ones who train in special elements of Waldorf schools like Kindergarten, Handwork, Movement, Music and Spanish)
We typically seek Waldorf specific training at Colleges such as Rudolf Steiner in California.
We are a public charter school, chartered both with the State and with Anchorage School District. It is better for our teachers and the students they serve to keep the training funding need with WPG and the salary/benefits and materials with our school/WCC budget.
Our school's excellence is supported by our community commitment to provide financial support to our teachers as they pursue ongoing Waldorf Training, education and certification. The WPG coordinates two main fundraising efforts (G.A.R.D.E.N Annual Giving Campaign & the Spring HHH Auction) in support of Teacher Training and other school needs.
