Seen at Carver


Carver held a food festival this past week to raise money for student activities and outings.

 
Support Waldorf Curriculum at Carver
State funds, which have covered the cost of Main Lesson and other Waldorf curriculum and supplies at Carver in the past, are no longer available. The GWC Guild hopes to raise the $24,000 needed to support Carver for the 2017-18 school year. Our goal is to raise $125 per student, but the Guild realizes each family's ability to give is different and all levels of support are appreciated. Use the donation button below, drop off checks made out to GWC Guild in the office or, if you're a state employee, consider choosing Carver during the United Way campaign (see information below).
