 supplies
 and 
any 
necessary
classroom
 furniture
 and
 equipment 
(i.e.
chairs,
desks).
 In 
the 
case
 of 
the 
early 
childhood 
and 
mixed‐age 
kindergarten
classes,
 some
 of
 this
 money 
will
 be 
allotted
 to 
the 
food
 budget. 
In 
the 
case 
of
 the 
5th/6th 
Grades,
 $300

 fund
 the

 in 
the

school 
events,
 the
 Pentathlon 
and/or
 the
 Medieval
Games.
 In 
the 
case
 of

$375 
of 
the 
total 
fee
 goes 
to 
the

teacher 
to 
fund 
Middle
School‐specific 
activities.
These 
fees
 are
 reevaluated
 each
 year
 and
 are
 subject 
to 
change 
from
 one
 year 
to
 the 
next. 

The
 other
 50%
 is
 divided
 up 
between
 the
 purchase/maintenance 
of 
equipment
 and
 consumables 
within 
the
 overall 
school
 budget
 and 
the 
school’s
 membership
 dues 
for 
AWSNA
 (Association
of
Waldorf
Schools
of
North
America) 
and

 (Waldorf
Early
Childhood

pays
 for 
the
 evaluation 
of 
our

necessary 
to
 maintain

Annual Giving Campaign

Prairie Moon Waldorf School celebrates a strong tradition of Annual Giving. Our school relies on the Annual Giving Campaign to bridge the gap between tuition income and the actual cost of running the School, including salaries, insurance, and rent, and programming. Parents, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees and friends work together toward a goal of 100% participation each year. Contributions to the Annual Giving Campaign are tax-deductible. We thank all families and friends for their participation.
