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.
