Earth Week

We love being GREEN at GREENFIELD! From re-use clothing collections, to all our walker students, to our deep connection with trees, Greenfield School is a great place to learn about how to care for the environment. One day isn't enough for us to celebrate our Earth...so we are expanding to Earth Week! Join us April 18-22 for a variety of fun activities aimed to engage our students with our beautiful planet!
