Summer Garden Volunteers Needed
It is hard to believe that it is almost summer! With the end of the school year comes an opportunity to enjoy various summer activities, including gardening. Gardening provides some of the best learning opportunities for young children. It teaches them about plants, insects, weather, and nutrition. It allows them to measure, count, and work their muscles. It gives them an opportunity to connect with the natural world. What a great way to enjoy the warm weather and sunshine of summer!
We are looking for families to help us care for our organic vegetable garden over the summer. This is a low stress way for people that are new to gardening to get an introduction to the world of growing produce, or for seasoned gardeners to share their knowledge and help our school community. If there are any families that are interested in helping out with our garden over the summer, please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for all you do!
Summer office hours will be from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. daily. We will be closed the week of July 1st. Don’t hesitate to email the office at email@example.com or to call us during these hours at 339-5111 if you have questions or need assistance.
Please check the lost and found for any items you may have misplaced this school year. Items that are left unclaimed after the last day of school will be donated into the Overfield extra clothes bin, or given to charity. Thank you!
Thank you to all of our families for another amazing school year! We are honored that you have chosen Overfield as the beginning of your young child’s educational journey. Have a fun and safe summer, everyone!
