Waldorf School Welcomes Volunteers for Day of Caring

Students and parents will team up to paint, repair and reorganize

Sixth- seventh- and eighth-graders and parents of the nonprofit Waldorf School of Santa Barbara will team up to work alongside community volunteers for the United Way of Santa Barbara County’s 2009 Day of Caring, the largest single-day volunteer event in the Tri-County.

Chosen as a work site for the 18th annual Day of Caring, the Waldorf School is gearing up to welcome volunteers from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday to paint, repair and reorganize the outdoor areas of the school to optimize the children’s play space.

“The fourth- and fifth-grade students will volunteer in the greater community by cleaning up Goleta Beach with the California Coastal Cleanup organization, another Day of Caring work site,” school administrator Joni McGoldrick said. “This is a wonderful way to model the global citizenship that is at the heart of our school’s philosophy, and we are thrilled to welcome in community volunteers to share in our school spirit. The Day of Caring slogan, ‘lend a hand, build a community’ is what we are all about.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
