CWS Summer Outreach Opportunities

Tuesday, June 2013

You are invited to join CWS families and friends for the

2013 CWS Summer Parades and Festivals

These events are all a part of Chicago Waldorf School’s Summer Outreach events. In them Waldorf children, parents, faculty, staff and friends march, play music and jump rope for Pride Parade, they wave streamers and ride scooters and throw confetti in Evanston for the July 4th parade, they knit and construct toys at the Glenwood Avenue Arts Festival, the Glenwood Market and at the Renegade Craft Fair. And in all these events they demonstrate and share their love of CWS in talk with neighbors interested in finding out more about our school and the special aspects of Waldorf education.

Enjoy staying connected with Waldorf families
this summer and help us present our school to
Chicago’s neighborhoods and communities. This plays an essential role in our enrollment outreach efforts and its also just plain good
old summer fun for the whole family

Come and join us for many, or even just one, of these events. You can march in the sun amid the cheering crowds for our parades (historically lots of costuming, face-painting and parade swag are involved- or wear your CWS t-shirt!). For those younger and older participants―or just the sun shy―we also have seating with cool drinks on the CWS bus which will drive in both parades.
