Night Tree 2021
Each year we have a winter celebration called Night Tree that is inspired by the book of the same title by Eve Bunting. The story chronicles one family’s annual tradition of making food for animals and then traveling to the same tree in the forest to hang the tasty treats. For over twenty years we have been inspired by this book and have adopted a similar custom.
Over these next few weeks, the children will be researching what animals live around our beautiful school. They will begin preparing treats for our local animals, and making art to decorate the patio on the playground. Each class will come together at night with their families to sing songs, listen to the Night Tree story, hang treats for the animals on the trees around campus, and enjoy tasty treats of our own. We invite you and your family to experience this tradition with us at the times listed in “Important Dates” section above. Due to COVID considerations, this will be an outdoor only event.
We hope to see you there!
We invite all Overfield Alumni back to experience one of our most beloved traditions. Walk an illuminated storybook trail featuring Eve Bunting’s beautiful wintertime tale. Hang a treat for our local animals, and take supplies home to make a piece of Overfield-inspired art. Bring a flashlight, and wear warm winter clothes.
Due to COVID concerns this will be an outdoor only event. The trail will begin in front of the main building at Overfield.
Let us know you’re coming and find out who will be there on Facebook @overfieldalumni
Thank you for your generosity on Giving Tuesday!
We appreciate all of your donations, which helped successfully kick off our Annual Giving campaign! Our school relies on income from charitable contributions through the Annual Fund to help reach a balanced budget each year, since tuition only makes up about 70-75% of the operating budget. If you have not yet made your donation, please donate today! Our goal is 100% participation of all current families, and no dollar amount is too small; thank you for helping us reach that goal!
