Greetings! The Waldorf School of Pittsburgh invites you to celebrate and share the season with us at Winter Fair!
Winter Fair is our annual winter event in which our whole community comes together to create an enriching seasonal experience that year after year lives in our hearts and memories as a welcoming to the holiday season. This annual event is a celebration and an important fundraising opportunity that supports our tuition assistance fund. Winter Fair also provides an opportunity to share the beauty of our campus with our wider community.
Back this year by popular demand—a marionette show for children ages 3 and up and a puppet story for children 3 and under! Be sure to reserve your spot for the marionette show as space is limited for those performances. Tickets reservations available online.
Our entire community comes together to prepare for this event which includes:
Raffle for All Ages
Jump Rope Making
Puppet Show for the Youngest Children
Orange Pomander Craft
Alumni Beeswax Modeling Contest & Tour of Heartwood Annex
Holiday Shopping in the Gnomes Cave (just for kids)
Community Service Project
Festive Photo Booth (sponsored by WSP Alumni Families)
Winter Fair Volunteers
Sign up for one (or two!) volunteer slots to help bring Winter Fair to life for the children. This is a great way to fulfill volunteer hours and to get to know other members of the WSP community.
Not able to volunteer for an in-person activity? No problem—there are a few things you can do from home that will also fulfill volunteer hours. Providing baked goods for our bake sale is one important way to volunteer. You may also string popcorn and cranberry garland at home to help decorate the school. All completed garland needs to be delivered to the school by Thursday, November 30th at noon.
Making donations is another great way to get involved! We are seeking donations of supplies for a few of the activities and crafts we have planned:
1/4 inch satin ribbon for wrapping orange pomanders
yarn—smooth acrylic yarn, worsted weight
tiny trinkets for the pocket person to gift (gems, small erasers, etc.)
Donations can be dropped off in the Front Office.
