Welcome to Green Acres! An enthusiastic spirit of partnership, cooperation, and support is central to the character of our school community. Parents, teachers, administrators, and students all play an important role in making our community feel comfortable and welcoming to everyone.
Each parent and staff member is a voting member of the Corporation, which establishes governing policies, and together they elect the members of the Board of Trustees. Board members—primarily parents and teachers—volunteer time, energy, and creativity to ensure the continued success of Green Acres.
Beyond the work of the Board, parent volunteers spend many hours contributing to our community by planning and carrying out a variety of projects and special events. An active Parents’ Association works in conjunction with the Board and the School staff to reach out to new parents, demonstrate appreciation for teachers, and provide a rich array of educational programs and social opportunities for all parents.
Community is developed among the student body to foster a sense of self and belonging where trust and mutual respect are valued. In classrooms, teachers and students work collaboratively to create a safe learning environment. The social curriculum strongly emphasizes inclusion, give-and-take, conflict resolution, and cooperation.
