Redirect Tax Credits to DMS and AWSF by April 15

April 15th is the last day to re-direct your AZ Tax Credits to DMS.

Did you know that when you contribute a Private School Tax Credit to Arizona Waldorf Scholarship Foundation (AWSF), they will donate 10% back to Desert Marigold School’s Annual Fund? It’s a win-win!

This tax season, FIRST – redirect the maximum Public School Tax Credit for your filing status to DMS, and SECOND – redirect the maximum Private School Tax Credit to AWSF.

Not only is this a wonderful way to decide how your tax dollars are spent, but it also provides scholarships to children attending Waldorf Schools in the state of Arizona–all while raising money for the Desert Marigold Annual Fund at NO COST to you.

There are three easy ways to redirect your taxes to AWSF:

  1. Online at AZ Waldorf Scholarships
  2. Mail a check and contribution form to PO Box 64416, Tucson, AZ 85728
  3. Call 520-257-6262

**Be sure to write DMS in the “How did you hear about AWSF” section to receive the 10% back for DMS.**

12th Grade Class seeking Practice Space for Senior Play

DMS families,

We are asking for your help. Our seniors are in need of a space that is the size of two classrooms combined, where they can practice their play from 9 am to 2 pm Monday through Friday, from Monday April 15th through to Friday May 3rd.

If anyone knows of a space we could use free of cost that would work for our needs, please let me know. They will be setting up a few props and a minor set (nothing like the boat we had as our set for the HS musical).

They will, of course, have constant adult supervision while in the play practice space.

Please contact Crystal at the HS office through email if you know of a space at

Thank you!
