Student School Supplies Donation
Peace Valley seeks to use natural, high-quality artistic tools and materials for your child—and provide uniform supplies for all students. These supplies are an integral part of a Waldorf curriculum.
- Waldorf materials are hard-to-find and more expensive than traditional school supplies when purchased independently
- As a school, Peace Valley can receive a discount when purchasing these supplies in bulk
- Rather than provide a list of school supplies for families to shop for, we are removing the hassle and asking each family to donate toward the materials fund (suggested donation $140 per student)
- Donations can be made at any time and multiple payments over several months, if necessary.
Your $140 tax-deductible donation will help to cover the purchase of: main lesson books (in lieu of textbooks), watercolor paper, beeswax block and stick crayons, modeling beeswax and clay, colored pencils, watercolor paints, brushes, calligraphy pens and paper, knitting yarn, raw wool, Eurythmy shoes, and more.
ANY amount donated will assist us with our school supplies for the year. We thank you for your contribution.

2018-19 School Calendar (Date Change in October!)
Peace Valley classes are 5 days a week Monday through Friday with a shortened day on Thursdays for weekly Faculty meetings and on-going professional development.
Our start/dismissal times are staggered for various reasons, but primarily to ease traffic during peak times and not disrupt the flow on Federal Way. Peace Valley will provide, free of charge, extended care for those families who have students in multiple grades. All-students may stay in a designated, supervised location until the latest pick-up time of 3:15 pm. For example, a first-grade student who is dismissed at 2:30 can participate in "extended care" and play outside with school supervision until 3:15 pm.
Students taking the school bus will arrive at the earlier start time of 8:30 and be allowed supervised play outside until brought inside by class teachers.

Bus Transportation Form
Peace Valley Charter is contracting with Brown Bus Company for transportation services to and from Peace Valley. Students who live more than 1.5 miles from Peace Valley and within our boundaries are eligible to participate in bus transportation services. If you are unsure, please refer the map on www.boisewaldorf.org/enrollment. Brown will be verifying eligibility when they plan the bus pickup/drop off locations and routes.
If you are interested in your child riding the school bus as a regular means of transportation to and from school, and you haven't already filled out a form, please contact Melinda at firstname.lastname@example.org Transportation Form
General Bus Information
Students who live within Peace Valley’s boundary will be given priority on the bus. We are not yet sure if/how we will accommodate out of district riders. Our bus routes will run mornings and afternoons for the whole school at once, not midday. Thursdays the bus will leave the school 45 minutes earlier than the other days, because it is our early release day. The bus will not go door to door but will pick up children from safe designated pick up points (chosen by Brown Bus Company) within our attendance area and not more than 1.5 miles from a student’s home.
Parents are responsible for the safety of their children before they get on the bus and once they are dropped off. Kindergarten children must have a parent/adult or older child/approved person to meet them at the bus door, or they will be kept on the bus and returned to the school. Once the routes are planned, estimated pick-up drop off times will be published on Brown’s website.

Learn a beautiful painting technique for your own home as well as assist us with the school. Peace Valley is excited about the opportunity to bring light and life to the school through this beautiful and unique art form known as Lazure. There are only 4 spots left and will be reserved in the order we receive forms with payment. We would like to have participants from each grade if possible. Then those trained will lead other volunteers to complete the painting of the various spaces of the school. Learn more and register online
We have a large number of items to purchase before school starts, classroom desks and furniture, office supplies, computers, sports equipment, gardening supplies and the list goes on and on. The state funds do not cover any of these expenses. We are using a loan to purchase what we need before we open. Donation received will help us depend less on this loan as well as the long-term interest on the loan.
Donations can be made online using Secure Instant Payments via echeck or credit card.
