We are delighted to have Jim McCutcheon on campus this week.

The Guitar Man – a legend at Overfield, Jim McCutcheon has been bringing his love of music to our school for nearly two decades. The Guitar Man brings not only his guitar, but also an astonishing array of stringed instruments to the children.

The Residency will take place May 16th to 20th. The Artist Celebration will be held in the Gathering Place on May 20th from 6pm-7pm.

For over 50 years The Overfield School has fostered a love of learning and celebration of young children. It is our mission to provide the highest quality early childhood education for families of the Miami County.

Our Annual Fund supports the operations of our school. Examples of school operations include:

  • Heating the school in the winter months
  • Playground upkeep such as Like-A-Bike repairs and replacing bike helmets
  • Interior & exterior painting
  • Materials for daily classroom projects

We have nearly reached our 2015-2016 goal of $25,000. We need your help now, more than ever. If every family donates $50, we will reach our goal. Please join Overfield’s teachers, staff and Board of Trustees members who have all donated to the Annual Fund this year.

Please consider making a donation of $50 by June 1st. Your generosity will make a difference in our school.

Nature News

Chilly weather prompted us to cancel our workday this Saturday, May 14, but some indefatigable workers showed up anyway. We now have improved gardens and grounds to show for it.  Deb pulled weeds in the vegetable garden until the McGowan family showed up and said they were ready to work. Drew (dad), Cartwright (a South Sider) and Cora (an Overfield alum) jumped into removing the invasive weeds and honeysuckle under the pine trees on the south side of the turnaround. It looks very nice!

Our new apiary is ready near the vegetable garden and waiting for our first bee colony to move in. Deb will pick up our special bees on Wednesday afternoon. Fridayevening, before the Guitar Man’s concert, the South Side is having a bee-themed class meeting. They will share their year-long bee research with their families and take them to see the new hive.

In support of Deb, our Naturalist, Overfield will be hosting a booth at the Lost Creek Garden and Antique Show. We are looking for volunteers to represent Overfield in our booth. Volunteer for a few hours – or spend the day. It’s a fun day for the whole family.

Friday, June 10th 5pm to 9pm
