Welcome to Green Hedges!
An exciting start to every school year is the opportunity to welcome new students and families. We can hardly wait to get started and are delighted to have you joining the Green Hedges community.
Please save the dates for our welcome events listed below. Our parent volunteers will be in contact with new families during the summer and in late June, parents of new students will receive a welcome guide with back-to-school information and summer work for your children.
We look forward to welcoming you to campus in September! In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us in the Office of Admission and Business Office with questions.

Events for New GHS Parents
New Parent Reception
Thursday, September 6, 5:00 – 6:30PM
Kilmer House Lawn – Green Hedges School Campus
Shortly after the start of School, Green Hedges hosts a reception for all our new parents. Parent Representatives for each class, Trustees, and School Administrators also attend. Meeting parents of students in their child(ren)’s class, putting faces with the names of folks who have helped get them oriented, and just taking a breath after the start of a new school year all help new parents acclimate to their new school community.

Following morning drop-off please join The GHS Parent Association (PA) for a light breakfast and coffee in the picnic grove. Grade level room parents, PA officers, Board of Trustees, and administrators will be present to welcome you to GHS, provide an overview of how to get involved in volunteering on campus, and answer any questions you have.
