Through class parent meetings and individual parent-teacher conferences, parents are connected to what is happening in the classroom and in the school as a whole. Parent education speaker series and workshops are offered at Live Oak Waldorf School throughout the year. Child development professionals offer valuable information and discussions on topics such as parenting the young child, grades child and middle school adolescent, parenting in a fast-paced, digital world, Waldorf education 101, rhythms of early childhood education and why it works, loving discipline, and simplicity parenting. There are also often workshops for parents in creative endeavors such as watercolor painting, textile arts, and paper crafting.TIME, TALENT, and RESOURCE CONTRIBUTIONSThe student experience is enriched by the committed participation of our parent community who contribute their time and energy in countless ways. There are many ways to help continue this vision. Parents work behind-the-scenes and in the classroom; they chaperone trips, raise funds, and serve in leadership roles. You can volunteer your time, talents, or resources to projects such as grounds-keeping, painting, gardening, care of the farm animals, event planning and support, or help with fun fundraising efforts! You can also choose to act in a performance event, help sew costumes, create backdrops or help bake for one of our many events. There is something fun for everyone!
