Our treasured fire truck will be missed for a bit while it is being rehabbed. It was hard to let it leave the playground, but fresh paint, rust repair, new chrome, and repaired interior will ensure this beloved Overfield artifact will be around for our students to play in for many years to come. 🚒

When they got home from school, Zach looked through his Overfield school scrapbook with me. As I read to him the daily reflections he enjoyed seeing all of the projects he did, friends he made, and teachers he loved.
As we finished going through his scrapbook, he said to me,”Gramma, I miss Overfield.” Dominic was nearby and when he heard his brother, Dominic agreed, “I miss Overfield, too,” he said. 💙💙

Why Children Need Lots of Time to Play Let’s get right to the heart of the matter: children need more time. Time to play, explore, think, daydream, imagine, and simply be children. They deserve better than being herded like cattle from one activity to the next all day long. But let’s be honest: kid time is totally different than adul...
