Why Your Support of SunRidge School is Needed
We are a public charter school in Sebastopol, California with a curriculum that emphasises place-based education and eco-literacy to over 270 students in grades K-8. While we are a public school, we also significantly rely on parent pledges and fund raising to meet the needs of the curriculum and site improvements. This means that each family is asked to make monthly contributions to the school and we also rely on the wider community for financial support.
Being a school that follows Waldorf principles, our curriculum includes specialty programs such as handwork, games, art, music, and woodworking. Parent pledges and fundraising help pay for these programs as state funding per student is insufficiednt. Simply put, we do not receive enough to pay for the type of curriculum we strive to provide.
This year we would like to create new gardens for growing organic foods and make improvments to the playground environoment. By bidding on or donating items to our auction, you will be making a noticable beneficial impact on many children. Thank you for your support!!
