THE STORY:

Imagine an ideal culminating environment for a Waldorf School eighth grade class.  The SEEDclassroom will integrate into upper grades science programming and expand the students' need and ability for exploration, critical thinking and problem solving.  Whether in physics, organic chemistry, or anatomy, the curriculum of 8th Grade is reflected within the SEED classroom and thus an ideal experience for our oldest students.

Imagine a classroom that is inspiring, healthy, and restorative for students and teachers.  A learning environment that prioritizes wellness, student development, experiential learning, teacher happiness, and community relationships.

Imagine a classroom that generates all of its own energy, and treats all of its water.  A classroom that grows food indoors to complement the gardens outside. A learning environment with healthy indoor air and non-toxic and locally-sourced materials.  A classroom that provides a living laboratory for hands-on learning opportunities. 

Imagine a learning place that is beautiful, inspires, and embraces all of our school’s values for health, wellness, and development of the whole child.  A place that fosters our educational philosophy of head, heart, hands.

This is a SEEDclassroom, which stands for Sustainable Education Every Day.  It’s a learning environment that meets the Living Building Challenge standards, and embraces what all classrooms should be for students and teachers.

Help us plant a SEEDclassroom at the Waldorf School of Pittsburgh!  We are growing as a school, and need additional space for our students. This classroom honors and embodies our values as a school, and provides an excellent learning environment.  We hope to use the classroom to grow student minds and experiences, serve as a model for other schools in the region, and build stronger community connections with our surrounding neighborhoods.   Our goal for this fundraiser is $25,000 which will fund a portion of this learning environment.

You can help us build a SEEDclassroom and leave a legacy for years to come! For the below amounts, you will receive the associated gifts as a thank you from our school.

  • ACORNS $25 – A seed packet
  • SEED $100 – A Waldorf SEEDclassroom t-shirt.
  • SPROUTS $250 – An invitation to our "Green Tie" party for the unveiling of our classroom and a Waldorf SEEDclassroom t-shirt.
  • SEEDLING $500 – An invitation for two guests to attend our "Green Tie" party for the unveiling of our classroom. A beautifully handmade wood-burned magnet made by our upper grades students.
  • SAPLING $1,000 – Your family name will be displayed on a permanent, beautiful structure on-site. Plus an invitation for four guests to attend our "Green Tie" party for the unveiling of our classroom.
  • SEEDS FOR THE FUTURE LEGACY $5,000 - Through a partnership with Tree Pittsburgh, a tree will be planted in your name. Your family name will also be displayed on a permanent, beautiful structure on-site. Plus an invitation for four guests to attend our "Green Tie" party for the unveiling of our classroom.

All gifts will be mailed at the completion of the fundraising campaign.
