The Drake Family

WE CHOOSE GREENWOOD!!Hi, I'm Jamie Drake an Early Grove teacher here at GreenWood and a mom of four amazing kids, two whom are GreenWood students. There are so many reasons why our family chose GreenWood Charter. We were happy in the public school system and Cannon and Georgi were thriving at our neighborhood school. When I interviewed and was offered a job at GreenWood last year I didn't plan on bringing them with me to the school, my kids were happy at our neighborhood school. As I became more and more familiar with GreenWood, I realized what a gem of a school it is and how AWESOME it would be to have my kids attend and be afforded the fun opportunities that GreenWood offers. The following is a list of some of the awesome things GreenWood won our family over with:

*PE 4 days a week
*A variety of PE courses (Yoga, outdoor sports, African drumming/dancing, and fitness)
*Art 2 days a week with a trained art teacher
*Nutrition classes
*Holistic approach to teaching
*Fantastic Field Work opportunities

After having a year of experience at GreenWood I can tell you that we are hooked! In addition to the above mentioned reasons why GreenWood, Cannon and Georgi and I came up with a few more of the scale tipping reasons why we call GreenWood home:
*Faculty and Staff that love each other
*School lunch program that is second to none (seriously delish!)
*Service learning opportunities
*Fresh fruit and veggie grant that helps kids try a variety of produce
*Teachers who are invested in the students and their families and the local community
*Field trips that are amazing, frequent, and put the students in the role of explorer
*Focus on environment and importance students play in it's survival

At GreenWood, teachers think outside the box of traditional teaching methods and in so doing the students think outside the box as well. At GreenWood, we learn that everyone is our class is important and needed and everyone's ideas matter. GreenWood has been a great move for our family. We look at nature, food, friends, and learning in different ways than we did before. We are blessed and better having joined the GreenWood family.
