Please join us the weekend of August 24th and 25th, 2013 for Beautification Weekend! Beautification Weekend will be taking place at the Waldorf School of Pittsburgh on Saturday, August 24th from 8am – 4pm and Sunday, August 25th from 8am – 6pm. New this year, we will be having a special beautification event on Saturday, August 24th from 9:30 – 11:30am.
This year, Little Friends Beautification Weekend will be held on Saturday, August 17th, and Sunday August 18th, instead of on the 24th and 25th with the Nursery – 8th Grade School Beautification. This is due to the fact that our Little Friends Program begins on August 26th, a week prior to the rest of the school. Parents are welcome to attend Little Friends Beautification (there is so much to do to get ready!), or may arrange with the Little Friends Director to assist in final preparations during the 24th and 25th. We welcome any and all parents to come and help set up our Little Friends spaces on the 17th and 18th. People handy with a paint brush or adept at moving furniture are most welcome!
What is Beautification Weekend?
While teachers and staff at the school have been preparing for the upcoming school year all summer long, Beautification Weekend is the time when the entire school community comes together to work on cleaning, organizing, and preparing the school’s buildings and grounds for the new school year. It’s a wonderful opportunity to come together and talk about summer adventures while dusting , cleaning, or arranging furniture in your child’s new classroom.
Beautification Weekend is for the whole community! New and current families, alumni, and the greater school community are all welcome to lend a hand and share in the beautification of the school. Even younger children can help with smaller projects like dusting or gardening, and free childcare is available for children 18 months – 5 years old with RSVP (more information below).
In an effort to thank our priceless volunteers, lunch will be provided both days.
Special Beautification Event
On Saturday, August 24th from 9:30 – 11:30am we will be having a special event to launch Beautification Weekend by helping us to see our outdoor campus through the community’s eyes! Join us for a special all ages facilitated exploration and visioning of our school’s grounds.
Free childcare is available from 8am – 12pm both days for children aged 18 months – 5 years old with RSVP. Parents should RSVP with the child’s first and last name, age, and any relevant health information to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, August 21st at noon.
