2010-11 Campaign

Dear Pine Hill Alum Parents:

It’s funny how parenthood makes a person concerned for the future. No matter how politically, environmentally and culturally aware you may have been before the kids arrived, chances are you began taking the news more seriously as you imagined the impact of current events on the world your children would inherit.

When I think about all the ways I could create a better world for my children and theirs, one of the obvious organizations to support is Pine Hill Waldorf School.

Pine Hill Waldorf School is still turning out alert, healthy, creative youths – the kind of people the world needs now, and is going to need even more in the coming decades.

Pine Hill was part of our past, but it continues to hold relevance and value in the role it can play in our future, and that of our children and grandchildren.

If, as ours do, your children demonstrate the value of Pine Hill Waldorf School, I hope you’ll give to the school in proportion to that worth. For who knows better than we do what this school has to offer the world?
