We decided to donate the new swing set for the Kindergarten play yard because we wanted the young children to be able to have new, safe equipment on which to play. Giving back to OVWS is something that we feel is very important as it has literally given our three children the best possible Waldorf education and for that we can never be thankful enough!

If you can, please make our wishes come true! 

If you might be able to donate any of these items or otherwise help Orchard Valley acquire them, please speak to staff in the School Office. Used items in good condition are generally just as useful to us as new ones.  Please do not just drop off items at the school: please speak with us first. Feel free to email staff with questions.

As always, donations to the school are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Please keep an eye on this page because our wish list will evolve.  There will generally be some big items on the list and some smaller items.
