Dear Friends of The Clover Hill School,

We write to you with heavy hearts because we have difficult news. Due to inadequate enrollment and related financial difficulties, the School will not resume classes in September. Instead we will be proceeding to close the School by year end. The Board has labored tremendously to search for solutions and yet, ultimately, we have found the obstacles insurmountable.

We feel absolutely blessed for all the years that we were able to bring programs inspired by Waldorf education to lower Fairfield County. We are thankful to the many families and children who shared their lives with us, and to every volunteer, teacher, and friend who donated time, talent or funds to enable this “small but mighty school” to shine a beacon of light out into the world.

We must express our particular gratitude to:

– Tony and Anne Bingham whose 2007 gift enabled us to build and then launch Clover Hill in Norwalk;

– The Daphne Seybolt Culpeper Memorial Foundation which provided not just the funds but also the assurance we have needed to operate and go forward confidently, even in stormy times;

– and finally The Michaelic Anthroposophical Group of Connecticut which is comprised of the individuals who founded the School and has been the source of spiritual, operational and financial support since.

Now we turn to the task of concluding operations in a professional and sensitive manner. Task groups have been engaged in this endeavor. In the meantime, your comments and continued good wishes are most welcome.

Warm regards,

Brian, Donna and Sarah

on behalf of the Board of Trustees
