We are thrilled to be welcoming Omope Carter Daboiku–affectionately known as Mama O–as a visiting artist the week of October 23rd! Many thanks to the Ohio Arts Council and Muse Machine for helping to provide this opportunity, where the children will get to immerse themselves in the world of storytelling. We can’t wait to use this medium to explore cultural history and family stories, all through the language of food and gardening! If you’d like a sneak peek of Mama O’s storytelling, she will be at Young’s Dairy Spooky Barn this Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm–if you visit, make sure you tell her you’re from Overfield and we can’t wait to welcome her to our school!
Autumn at Overfield is fast approaching! This fun-filled day will take place Saturday, October 21st from 4-8 p.m. We need your help to make this day a success!

Changeable Weather and Extra Clothes
As we’ve seen over the past week, the weather can be unpredictable at this time of year, so now would be a good time to add pants and long sleeved shirts to your child’s extra clothes baskets. We would also advise you to put extra socks in for those days when feet get wet playing in muddy puddles in spite of wearing rain boots! Also, please keep in mind that many children’s outdoor time is in the morning when it is often quite chilly in the fall, even if it’s set to warm up later in the day. Many children have been longing for hats and gloves on these kind of days. It’s that time of year! Thank you for labeling all items, and for making sure your child is equipped to play outside in all types of weather.
