We are excited to share with everyone that our Overfield Family Partnership (OFP) meeting for November, “Storytelling at Overfield” will take place on Thursday, November 16th, at 6:30pm in The Gathering Place.
Our discussion of the evening will be about our visiting artist (Omopé Carter Daboiku aka Mama O), looking at storytelling within our school, and what we can do to incorporate it in our homes.
Parents and caregivers, please join us at this wonderful event to make connections and build friendships, while we spend time immersing ourselves in this core part of the children’s day.
The OFP is excited to share that we will be able to offer child care at our meeting, by RSVP only. We have to limit our child care group to the first 16 children who are ages 3 and up and potty trained. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee availability for drop-ins.
Please email FamilyPartnership@overfield.org names and ages of the children you will be bringing to reserve your spot no later than Tuesday (11/14) at 12pm.
Overfield Spirit Wear is now available! Order forms will be going home with children this week. Turn in your order form and payment to the office by November 20th; payment can be made by check or Venmo. Samples are available in the office for sizing and material–stop by anytime from 8 am until 4 pm to take a look!
Thank you all so much for taking the time to meet with us to discuss your wonderful children. We so appreciate this time of connecting home and school! Please don’t hesitate to reach out if there is anything further you would like to discuss–our door is always open!
Courtesy and Safety Considerations at Arrival and Dismissal
Please make sure to observe the following courtesies and safety protocols while dropping off and picking up children at Overfield:
Observe the speed limit of 10 mph on the lane and in the front circle. Please pull up as close as is safe to other cars when parking, and do not leave large amounts of space in between.
Please don’t park in the area immediately around the corner coming up the lane. This is designated with a yellow painted curb.
Avoid parking at the end of the lane by the Kindergarten building, making sure to leave ample room for cars to turn around in this area.
Pull to the side when dropping off or picking up children, including in the front circle. This is important in order to maintain a good traffic flow. We do know that the leaves are making it difficult to pull over fully and to navigate the hill; we have spoken with our neighbors about this, and apologize for the inconvenience.
We recongnize that with higher numbers of children there is a lot more congestion at pick up and rop off. We are aware and sympathetic to the woes that this can bring when you are picking up and dropping off your child. We are looking at staggered times and/or a way to re-route drop off for next school year to alleviate these issues.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work together to keep all children safe and make arrival and departure as smooth as possible!
Thank you for your participation in our Chipotle dine to donate, which raised $377! We also want to thank everyone who came out to Crafted and Cured on Friday–our community is strong and connected because of your participation!
