GENEROUS MATCHING CHALLENGE GIFT!
An incredibly benevolent and anonymous donor has just given the school a matching challenge gift of $40,000!  In the words of the donor:  

I am sending this gift as an endorsement of the health and vigor of the Ithaca Waldorf School in this exciting time of expansion, and as a statement of confidence in the Faculty, Administration and Board.  Carry on with your excellent work!  

Please share the news, and expect a Spring e-Campaign letter to arrive soon!

SUMMER ASSEMBLY
Friday, June 9th at 11am

Lower Treman Park Pavilion (same place as MayFaire, without the rain - we hope!).  All children will be transported via bus from IWS to the Pavilion at 10am that morning.  Please plan on meeting your child there at 11am for the assembly presentations, and joining us for a picnic lunch (bring your own) at 12:30.  

Please note:

  • This is a HALF DAY for all students at IWS, so you are free to depart after the assembly (approximately 12:15), although we'd love you to stay for the picnic!  
  • There will be no transportation back from Treman to IWS, so please pick up your child from Lower Treman Park by 12:15 pm.   
  • Weather permitting, there may be swimming below the Falls (if a lifeguard is on duty).  Please bring swimming gear if you'd like to take your child to the swimming area after s/he has been dismissed from the assembly.
