Fundraisers

Special events are a fun way to raise needed funds for the Waldorf School of the Peninsula.  These events provide parents the opportunity to socialize with other families, alumni and friends – while raising money for the school. Inviting your friends and family and volunteering your time, talent, and resources are all important ways you can get involved.

Holiday Faire

First Saturday in December
Los Altos Campus: 11311 Mora Drive

The Waldorf School of the Peninsula (WSP) hosts an annual Holiday Faire on the first Saturday in December at our Los Altos campus.

The event, with activities for children and adults, is based on centuries-old traditions and is steeped in beauty and reverence for the winter season.

A variety of hands-on activities are available to faire-goers, including dipping beeswax candles, hand-decorating gingerbread cookies, Children’s Workshop, and making wreaths with an abundance of colorful natural materials. The Gnome Adventure is an especially beloved activity, where children (and adults!) crawl through a passage lined with wintry vignettes that show gnomes hard at work doing seasonal chores. There are also old-fashioned games of skill, such as Treasure Mountain, Leap of Faith, Troll Bridge, Shoot for the Stars, Catapult Castle, Balance Challenge, Pillow Jousting and Beanbag Bonanza. This year our very popular Puppet Show will be Rumplestiltskin.

Music and entertainment is provided all day on the center stage, and includes performances by Waldorf students, parents and faculty. Free shuttles to nearby parking lots are provided.

For those wishing to shop for some quality holiday gifts, a our Heart’s Delight school store expands into a Holiday Boutique which offers hundreds of beautiful handmade and unique items for sale, including European wooden toys, candles, knit scarves, shawls, felted purses, children’s books, parenting and craft books, yarn and knitting materials, art and craft supplies, jewelry and one-of-a-kind dolls.

Come again on Sunday to finish your shopping at our expanded Heart’s Delight Gift, from 11 am to 1 pm.

Our daughter’s Waldorf education has taught her how to think for herself and be responsible for her decisions, as well as empathetic and sensitive to the needs of others. She is exposed to a variety of different ideas, but never given one view of it. Waldorf has taught her to think for herself and truly enjoy the process of learning.
