Opportunities for parent involvement abound. Please know that as a parent of a Kimberton Waldorf School student, you are a member of this association and your involvement, through meeting attendance and volunteer activities, is encouraged and sincerely appreciated.
Volunteering time to support the students and staff of Kimberton Waldorf School is a wonderful way to connect with other parents and the larger community!
Opportunities abound and are broad-ranged, running the gamut from welcoming new parents, to preparing or serving lunch in our organic school lunch program, to helping increase community awareness about Kimberton Waldorf School. There are options for any parent’s schedule. To sign up as a volunteer, please complete the Volunteer Interest Survey
