• Residency Celebration, April 25 at 6 pm: Artist-in-Residence Kate Kern has been inspiring students with her art this past week, and leading them in creating paintings and sculptures that focus on both nature and imagination. She will continue to work with us this coming week, and the students’ work with Kate will be shared at a celebration open to all families this Friday, April 25 at 6 pm. We are grateful to the Ohio Arts Council for their sponsorship of this residency. Family participation is also a big part of what makes this residency possible. Thank you to families for providing delicious lunches, and thanks to Family Partnership for providing additional financial support.
  • Kindergarten Information Meeting and Open House, April 27 at 2 pm:  A panel of past parents will talk about their children’s Kindergarten experiences at Overfield and how their children transitioned to first grade. If you are considering where to send your child for Kindergarten next year, we hope you will attend to get these parents’ perspectives. We will also host an Open House that afternoon from 2-4 for prospective students of all ages.
  • Reggio Parent Roundtable, April 29 after morning drop-off: This monthly discussion group was created for continued conversation between parents regarding parenting, education and life with little ones. Our Studio Artist, Elizabeth Collier, will attend to add her perspective on children and art. All are welcome to join us in the Gathering Place
