In memory of two beloved community members

Our community suffered two terrible losses this weekend: Lyn Barton, cherished Kindergarten teacher who fought cancer for 7 months, and Vince Russell, a 4th Grade parent who was killed Saturday night in a motorcycle accident, not long after attending Lyn Barton's visitation hours at the Fellowship. 

Our hearts are with their families, whom we encourage you to support. Links to the two funding sites are:

for Lisa and Rocco Russell, http://www.gofundme.com/f50zyw.

The Marshmallow Test

Are students losing their ability to self-regulate? Is "self-regulation" another word for obedience? What about the debate on willpower and that hard-to-define concept du jour, "grit"?  This piece on the “academic diligence task” raises complex questions.

Simplicity Parenting

We wanted to share a link with you, to the Simplicity Parenting blog, which offers lots of inspiration for slowing down in order to connect more deeply with your family. 

Green Meadow parent (and Parent & Child teacher) Marieke Duijneveld will offer a Simplicity Parenting class beginning on October 6. See details and registration information in our Community Education brochure.

The Value of Unstructured Play Time for Kids

Let's remember the importance of unstructured play time for our children, all summer long. 

A great quote: 

"Free play allows children to develop the flexibility needed to adapt to changing circumstances and environments—an ability that comes in very handy when life becomes unpredictable as an adult."
