WE CHOOSE GREENWOOD!

Meet the Gouldby family:

We choose Greenwood every single day. Greenwood Charter School is a community of teachers, aids, administrators, cafeteria staff, janitors, parents, and grandparents, and extended family, etc. that all work together to Nourish the Seeds that are our children.

Our school encourages each of us, parents, teachers, and children alike, to engage in our children's education. We set goals together and work towards them together. My daughters feel like they are SEEN. For Mom's, THIS means Everything!

Greenwood's healthy mind and body initiative gets all of us excited to find ways to be more active, eat healthier, and be mindful. We enjoy participating is mindfulness exercises with Coach D and find the practice useful in our everyday lives. We enjoy the family hikes and camping trips and other activities Mr. Andrew initiates and we've found ourselves inspired to find opportunities to be more active at home.

Here is a picture of Jessie and Maddie with the most recent haul from their vegetable garden. They were inspired by their school community to plant their very own garden. It was fun to see them get so excited as they planned it out and planted everything from seed … well everything but the tomatoes! We've made homemade salsa and marinara and LOTS of zucchini bread. We've got pumpkins galore and the girls want to attempt making pumpkin pie from scratch. Wow!

Our garden has given us opportunities to spend more time together, learn new things, and eat healthier. It's created a stronger sense of community in our neighborhood as well; the girls enjoy walking up and down the street to our neighbors to give away fresh vegetables, salsa, or zucchini bread. They love having "little visits" with the empty-nesters and making new friends.

We are so grateful to be a part of the Greenwood community!
