Hi
Some of you have noticed a discrepancy between the fundly total and my last update - that's because some donations have been made directly to the school office.
Thanks to everyone, our grand total is now $10,523.
Special thanks to an anonymous supporter who has donated $2,500.
It takes a village!

Dear Friends of the Maple Village School,

In today’s harsh and fast-paced world, Maple Village Waldorf School (MVWS) provides a sanctuary for childhood right here in Long Beach. With the wisdom of the Waldorf curriculum, our children are given time and space for and are gently supported in their becoming.  

MVWS enriches our students with a lavish curriculum that includes cultural and foreign language study, performing arts, applied arts, music, and movement, all in conjunction with a strong academic curriculum of mathematics, language arts, and science.  Through experiential learning, we help ignite curiosity, passion excitement for learning. 

All independent schools rely on above and beyond tuition and fees. Artistically and academically rich education is and simply put, the real cost f providing this rich curriculum to our students is greater than the cost of tuition.  The annual giving campaign provides an opportunity for parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, Board members, staff, local business and other friends of the school to help us provide this wonderful education for as many children as possible. 

We are looking for 100% participation from our community. However large or small your donation, what matters is that you participate in support of the curriculum, your teachers, and the school.  We ask that each family look into their hearts and give to their family’s best ability.  Some families truly cannot afford to give that much, yet others in the community are blessed with the means to contribute more. Many families may also make their gift in monthly installments to maximize your contribution over time. One-hundred percent (100%) support from within our community will also help us show outside donors the strength of your commitment and the need for Waldorf Education in Long Beach.

On behalf of all of our students and faculty, thank you for your support. We could not provide this wonderful education to the children of Long Beach without you.

With sincere gratitude for your support,

The Board of Trustees

"Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility—these three forces are the very nerve of education."
