The purpose of Running River School is to provide an educational environment that strongly respects the child as a multi-dimensional being, and recognizes that growth takes place in developmental stages. Learning happens in ways, and at stages, that are most fitting for the child to flourish as a whole human being. The multiple aspects of human development supported by Running River School include the physical, both brain and body, as well as the emotional and mental. This approach serves to foster a life-long love of learning, a deep sense of self, compassion and social integrity. These holistic goals, along with academic success, will serve both the individual and the larger community our children will belong to.
Running River School is an independent grade school initiative, inspired by Waldorf education, serving 1st through 4th grades as of 2016 (adding a grade each year). Currently we are working on boosting enrollment, extending our outreach efforts and organizing family-friendly events for the community.

Running River School grades 3 and 4 are hoping to hatch chickens and raise them until they are ready to go to the home of one of our teachers. We are looking to borrow a simple egg incubator with automatic egg turning and humidity/heat controls.

Seeking Good Sized Planters

See all wishes from Running River School

Description

Hi Sedona Wish List Followers!

Running River School is currently moving the classrooms to a new location. We are re-purposing most everything we already own, but have come up with one extra need. We are hoping to find some good sized planters to plant flowers and such, to add some beauty to the children's new environment. If you have any decent sized pots (not too small) in good condition that may need to be re-homed we will pick them up. We may be able to make a small monetary contribution, if that kind of exchange is important for you. Please contact Lupita at 928-362-2659 if you have anything to offer. Many thanks to you, from Running River School!

Donation of Items for Fundraiser Garage Sale

See all wishes from Running River School

Description

Hello my fellow Sedonans!

Running River School is still seeking donations of typical garage sale items in good condition through the end of May. Here's the best part, WE PICK UP! You don't even have to leave home to get it to us! We can take furniture too.

We do realize that most people have a favorite thrift shop they support, but we are hoping some of you are open to spreading the love around, just for a short time. We are collecting for only one more month, so your favorite shop/organization can still be supported the rest of the year!

Thank you for considering us! Last year, with the help of the community, we were able to raise around $7000, which went directly to overhead such as rent, utilities and teacher salaries. It may not seem like much to some, but it makes all the difference to us!

Sending you gratitude for all you do for your community. All organizations on this site could not operate without your generosity!

Storage Location

See all wishes from Running River School

Description

Running River School is starting the planning for our biggest yearly fundraiser, which is a gigantic garage sale that happens at the end of May. Last year's garage sale amounted to approximately half of our part-time Teacher Assistant's salary!

This year we are planning to start collecting and organizing earlier. What we need, to be able to achieve this, is a storage space that we can easily access during the day. An actual large storage unit, at one of the storage companies, or a two car garage would be most ideal. We could also pay a small amount for this donation if it becomes necessary.

When I think about donating to any organization I personally want to know if the organization is being run in a fiscally responsible manner. So, here is some background on our operation. Until Running River School can afford a more permanent location to call home, which will also give us the stability to allow for a larger student base, we are dependent on the generosity of the community to supplement our financial obligations. (It is kind of a "chicken and egg" situation, but we remain optimistic!) Most of our costs are covered through tuition, but in order to keep tuition affordable for the community it won't cover all of our costs until we reach a certain point in our growth.

We keep it simple! Our costs are teacher's salaries and employment costs, insurance, rent and utilities, bookkeeping and administrative costs not associated with an administrative salary. All of our administrative/organizational work, fundraising work, graphic design work, event planning, field trip planning and chaperoning, cleaning, etc. are covered on a volunteer basis by our small parent group. By our estimations, our board and parent group donate the equivalent of at least two full-time salaried positions per year! How's that for dedication!?

If you might be able to help us with our current need please call Lupita at 928-301-3232. Thank you!

Happy new year to everyone! Good luck with all of your endeavors this year!

Donation of Ad Space

See all wishes from Running River School

Description

Running River School has an upcoming fundraiser event in December (watch out for it!) for which we have partnered with John Soderberg, who is working to support arts education for children. We could really use the ability to get this event widely advertised. Perhaps you have an ad package or contract with one of the local papers that isn't yet fulfilled and you might be able to gift us an advertising spot? We do not currently have an advertising budget, so we rely on flyers around town, online calendars and word of mouth. But, for this special art event it would be great if we could really get seen with an advertisement or two! Doesn't matter what size; color or black and white ... anything would be better than nothing!

Aerial Silk Setup - $90

My son comes home and practices his cartwheels, handstands, round offs and balancing abilities until bedtime. My guess is he is really enjoying his gymnastics class! Our gym teacher, Miss Carrie, is still looking for approximately $90 to set up one aerial silk in the classroom to practice these gymnastics skills off the ground. Great for balance, agility, self confidence, strengthening muscles and general body awareness. Let us know if you would like to support our children on their gymnastic journey!

Hello Sedona Wish List Followers!

Our little ones are beginning their Spanish language journey this year, and are absolutely loving it! One item we are missing is a felt board for interactive activities. Our teacher will be making the pieces specific to each language project, but something to put them on would be most helpful! Handmade would also be fine. Maybe you have one lying around from when your kiddos were younger?

Muchas gracias!

- Kids who exercise are more likely to keep exercising as an adult.
- Exercise helps kids achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.
- Regular physical activity helps build and maintain strong, healthy muscles, bones and joints.
- Exercise aids in the development of important interpersonal skills—this is especially true for participation in team sports.
- Exercise improves the quantity and quality of sleep.
- Research shows that exercise promotes improved school attendance and enhances academic performance.
- Kids who exercise have greater self-esteem and better self-images.
- Participating in regular physical activity prevents or delays the development of many chronic diseases (e.g., heart disease, diabetes, obesity, hypertension) and promotes health.
- Children who are active report fewer symptoms of anxiety and depression and a better overall mood.
- Exercise helps improve motor coordination and enhances the development of various motor performance skills.

Items for Gymnastics Class

See all wishes from Running River School

Description

Running River School has hired an amazing assistant for our upcoming school year who has extensive training in gymnastics and the circus arts. We want to utilize her skills to enhance our "whole body" curriculum (head, heart and hands). We are in need of a few items to use for instruction.

1. Small exercise-type trampoline in great condition
2. Portable folding gym mat like this: http://www.orbring.com/products/bonded-foam-gymnastics-mat-4-x-8-x-2-blue-red.html
3. Incline mat like this: http://www.orbring.com/products/standard-folding-incline-mat-72x30x12.html
4. $90 to buy the supplies needed for "aerial silks"

You may sometimes ask yourself why a private school needs funding. I have the answer for you! Did you know that the vast majority of small private schools across the country hardly ever can cover their costs by tuition alone? This is also the case for us!

Your next question might be, why do private schools operate this way? The answer to this one, is also very simple. If we were to charge a tuition that would guarantee covering all costs nobody could afford to go! Our reasonable tuition was set in the hopes of making our alternative educational choice available to as many as possible. We also have one of the lowest tuition costs in the country for what we are offering. Which, in turn, requires us to reach out to the community for donations and support for our fundraising efforts. Thank you for considering us!

Our number one priority is growing the school, so it makes sense for us to put our focus into the recruitment of potential students. But our outreach can't stop there!

Real Estate Services Needed

Description

We don't need just any realtor, we need a realtor who also believes in what we are doing. One of our core beliefs is that to change the world, our children need to be raised and educated in a more holistic way than ever before. Our immediate need is an affordable (or even better, donated) space to use temporarily. We are small, so don't need much space but we do need outdoor, as well as indoor space. Our grand vision includes the donation, or deeply discounted purchase price, of acreage.
