On Handwork

Renate Hiller, a Green Meadow alumni parent and co-Director of The Fiber Craft Studio on Hungry Hollow Road, is featured in this wonderful short film on the importance of direct experience, educating our hands, interaction with nature, and natural materials for our children.

This summer, why not do some handwork with your child(ren)?

Farm Dance Memories

As the Third Grade returns today from their Farm Trip, we thought you would enjoy this short video of their very successful Farm Dance earlier this month.

Open Saturdays Tutoring Programs Gets RSF Grant

We are thrilled to announce that our Open Saturdays tutoring program has received a small seed fund grant from RSF Social Finance. The program, which ran from mid-January through early May of this year and will continue in 2014-15, serves students in Grades 7-12 in the struggling East Ramapo school district, in which Green Meadow is located.

We are so grateful to the students, teachers, parents, alumni parents, and friends who served as tutors, and we were proud to get to know the dedicated students who came to us each week to strengthen their academic work.

Here are some quotes from the students we served:

"Overall, this was a great experience and I would recommend it to anybody."

"My grades went up and my homework was completed more efficiently."

"I met new people and learned new things here."

"Thanks to the teachers and students who took time out to help me improve."

To volunteer your time next year, contact Diversity Committee Chair and Director of Communications and Marketing Vicki Larson.

Thank you to GMWS parent and Diversity Committee member Fernando Lopez-Diaz for these photos of our program.
