Tomorrow is #Giving Tuesday, a global day of philanthropy that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities around the world. This year, we hope you will make a gift to the Overfield School. For this one day, Overfield will receive matching funds of up to $1000 from the Gates Foundation and up to $5000 from an anonymous donor. As a nonprofit, independent school, Overfield depends on your gift to support visiting artists, financial aid, classroom improvements, and special projects like the upcoming production of a CD of children singing their favorite Overfield songs.
You can donate online through Overfield’s website or on our Facebook page, or email the school with a pledge and your donation will be matched dollar for dollar until we hit $5000! That means you can double your donation! Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when given together. Remember Overfield on #GivingTuesday.
Join us for our Annual Night Tree Celebration!
Every year we have a winter celebration called Night Tree which is inspired by the book of the same title by Eve Bunting. The story chronicles one family’s annual tradition of making treats for animals and then traveling to the same tree in the forest to hang the tasty treats. For over sixteen years we have adopted a similar custom. We will spend the next few weeks stringing treats for the animals that live around Overfield. We will also transform the Gathering Place into an indoor forest decorated with lovely creations made by all the classes. Each class comes on a special night and celebrates by singing songs, reading the book Night Tree, hanging the pre-made treats on the trees outside for the animals, and eating treats ourselves. We hope to see you there!
