“We believe that a strong school relies on initiative and commitment from all members of the community.” 

Richmond Waldorf School depends on the initiative and commitment of our parent community to help us achieve our mission. We aspire to be a community that embraces a culture of service. This service goes beyond our own children’s classes, extending to the school as a whole and to the greater Richmond community.

Working together for the betterment of our school strengthens our community, and when we volunteer and serve, we model important values for our children. While we do not require parents to perform community service, we recognize that “many hands make light work,” and if every family does its part, then the school will grow and thrive. We hope that each family will contribute approximately eight hours of community service each year.
