"It was November--the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines. Anne roamed through the pineland alleys in the park and, as she said, let that great sweeping wind blow the fogs out of her soul."
~L.M. Montgomery from 'Anne of Green Gables'

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 or drop off checks made out to GWC Guild in the office
