Growing WISE – The Year of OUR Castle
Purchasing a building for WISE
WISE is buying a school! With additional grades and children added every year, WISE has reached the point where we can own our own building. A school building will cost between 2 and 4 million, and WISE will need to raise $200,000-$400,000 for our downpayment. 100% of the funds raised in our Growing WISE Campaign will go towards the purchasing of a new school.
Purchase a Mosaic Tile between November and April, and help us raise our downpayment
Please consider making a donation to support this momentous phase in the life of our unique and growing school. From November-April, donations over $100 will be represented by a mosaic tile to be placed on the Growing WISE Mural ( ie, a donation of $700 will be represented by 7 mosaic tiles ). An engraved acknowledgement of your donation will be placed on a plaque near the mural. A receipt for tax purposes will be issued for your donation.
The Waldorf Independent School of Edmonton
At the Waldorf Independent School of Edmonton, we strive to educate the Whole Child; Head, Heart and Hands. Our Early Childhood programs nurture the wonder-filled imaginative world of young children, building a strong base for future learning and development. In the grades, teachers ideally stay with their classes, moving with the children up through Grades 1-8. Art, movement and culture are infused into all academic study. Nature and natural materials are integrated into the learning experience. Our goal is to explore the child’s full potential, while nurturing their self-esteem by encouraging the development of a whole range of additional skills. In this way, a lifelong love of learning is cultivated by nourishing the spirit of curiosity.
