Making Masks

How can we support one another when we need to be safely distanced? There are many ways as we are discovering. Whether we make a call to lift spirits, sew a mask for a healthcare worker, tutor a student, or donate money to a food bank, we are helping.

Following are volunteer ideas and opportunities, to support our school community, our Sacramento community, and the world during this time of need.

Waldorf students learn to hand and machine sew. The picture above is of face mask kits that were lovingly put together by our handwork teacher, Mrs. Fields. 

Many of our Parents are health care workers in hospitals. Please read the following letters from heath care professionals in our community:
