Many Waldorf schools and communities have already begun their celebrations of Waldorf100, incorporating the 100-year anniversary as a theme into their annual spring galas and festivals. Denver Waldorf School, The Waldorf School of Cape Cod, Highland Hall Waldorf School, and The Waldorf School of Garden City are just some of the examples of schools using their annual benefits to honor Waldorf education's anniversary.
Denver Waldorf School’s 2019 Auction and Gala celebrated both the school’s 45 year anniversary and Waldorf education’s 100th year. Founder of DWS and alumni of Rudolf Steiner’s original Stuttgart school, Ina Jaehnig, was the guest speaker. She co-founded the Denver Waldorf school in 1974 and has taught at the school for over 30 years helping to build a strong community of families, staff and faculty. Money raised supported capital improvements, school programs and scholarships.
