Getting Ready for School, and Staying Present in Our Lives

As we get ready for school to start next week, I wanted to share this article sent to me by a GMWS Board member. As with other aspects of parenting, so many of the challenges around media have to do with our own self-development, as we model a balanced life, healthy boundaries, and impulse control for our children. 

Happily, our child(ren)'s teachers, the Media Resource Group, our Community Education Series, and other parents are here to support all of us on this very worthwhile journey.

 See you next week!

GMWS in Times Square

Last month, Green Meadow participated in an ad campaign in Times Square, as part of an initiative sponsored by NYSAIS (the NY State Association of Independent Schools), of which we are a member.  Our name was listed alongside other independent schools in NY state, and one of our photos was used. You can watch a 36-second video of the ad (Green Meadow appears at the 10-second mark) and see a screen shot below, which shows one of the photos we submitted (featuring Eighth Grader Utchaa Williams in the bottom left quadrant).

Movement and Memory

This article from last month in The New York Times is an interesting follow-up to a recent blog post about movement in Waldorf Education. One of the most interesting quotes: "...the way the brain records and remembers movement in space may be the basis of all memory."
