The Tomorrow River Community Charter School will be holding its 5th annual Holiday Faire on Sunday, December 8th from 10am to 3pm. The public is invited to shop and get a glimpse of this unique school all while supporting local craftspeople and helping to raise funds for school expansion. Admission is just $2 for adults, $1 for children and free for those under 5.
For this day only, the TRCCS/CWES campus is transformed into an enchanted holiday village, with local craftspeople and farmers selling their wares. Sounds of local musicians fill the air while gnomes stroll about peddling both savory and sweet morsels. Visitors will fill their bellies with delicious soup made by the school’s 5th grade students, and sip Ruby coffee while enjoying home-baked goods. Children delight in guided crafts, a kids-only-store, where everything costs under a $1, and roasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate around a campfire.
This event is a tradition in schools of the Waldorf pedagogy, an educational style first developed by Rudolf Steiner in 1919 that utilizes the arts and nature to teach traditional subjects. Students, teachers, and parents work together to create goods to sell to raise funds for their school. The community is also invited in to sell their creations and can sign-up to vend by filling out our vendor form or by calling (715) 346-2730.
Please come and enjoy the sights, sounds, and good feelings of the TRCCS Holiday Faire.
We invite you to our Festival of Courage. Grades students will perform the play of Brave Michael. Following the performance parents will work with students on projects throughout the campus, helping us prepare for winter, update the grounds/garden and engage in the classroom/campus community. Following the practical work we will have a Harvest Potluck. Please Bring a dish to share and apples for the cider press. Your child(s) classroom teacher will reach out to you with any specific needs for the practical work the class will be responsible for.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

We have our annual vision and hearing screening on Monday September 16th for our Kindergarten, 2nd, 4th and 6th grade students. This service is provided by Portage County's Health and Human Services Division of Public Health. Every year we are able to identify students that are struggling in one area or another and this information is shared with families so that they can follow up with their own physician. If you have any questions about this program feel free to call the TRCCS office at 715-346-2730.
