Inspire: A Party with a Purpose

Each spring, we invite our community to come together to celebrate our students and raise critical funds to support a specific need that will strengthen our programs and enhance our children’s learning experience.

Inspire 2020

Despite not being able to gather in person this year for our annual dinner and auction, we brought the 100th Anniversary of Waldorf Education to a spirited close online in the company of friends. It was a joy to see so many smiling faces and to watch heartfelt videos featuring students, parents, and faculty. We also celebrated Head of School Tracy Bennett as she closes in on nine years with SWS and prepares for new adventures — and welcomed Raquel Scharf-Anderson as our next Head of School. Thank you to the many volunteers and sponsors who helped to move our event online — and for generous donations totaling $50,000 to the Bridge Fund, which will help SWS respond to the changing needs of our families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We invite you to watch the recording of Inspire 2020!

If you missed the opportunity to connect and celebrate online with SWS at Inspire 2020, you can watch the recording now!
