Giving at Green Meadow

Your support has a big impact, making a difference for each of our students.

Over our 70+ years, we have continually improved our campus. Updates have included a redesigned Arts Building, new playground equipment, a refurbished gym, a high school chemistry lab, new handcrafted wooden desks, improvements to our Music Room, and much more. These additions and upgrades would not have been possible without the generous support of our donors.

Fall Fair

The Fall Fair is a beloved annual family tradition that engages the entire community. It is an opportunity for us to raise awareness of our school and to strengthen the social fabric between our current families, alumni, GMWS faculty and staff. This is an all hands on deck event and our volunteers help contribute supplies, oversee the various events, sell tickets, and much more.
