Parent Council

The Santa Fe Waldorf School’s Parent Council re-formed in 2015. A group of parents from all areas of the school gathered to identify the needs of the school community and agreed on a mission and developed a mandate that will promote clear and consistent communication between parents and the governing bodies of the school, organize and utilize the unique skills and energies of the parent body to initiate and support events that enrich the life of the school community, encourage and support parent understanding of Waldorf Education by facilitating learning opportunities, and support the faculty, staff and board on behalf of our children.
