On Stage at Carver: The Red and the Black 
As the third week of senior play takes off, we are hitting the gas and really getting things going. Costumes full of 1950's style are being created, platforms for our lively set are being built, and we have been relentlessly rehearsing.

How You Can Support Carver
Giving to Carver shows your support of our diverse programs. As a public Waldorf school, we rely on donations to provide funding for all the "extras" for our students every day such as the high-quality art supplies students use every day in their classes. Your donations have helped pay for a music program, the mobile kitchen and chalkboards. Our next goal is shaded outdoor seating! Please consider making a donation to Carver.
