Committed to the future of our children
The Board of Trustees of Green Fields consists of self-appointed trustees dedicated to developing confident, curious and academically independent students.
Election to the board of trustees carries with it a responsibility of stewardship. By definition, trustees are the custodians of the school; they hold "in trust" the mission and the school's reputation. Current trustees accept the obligation to not only preserve, but to also add to the enterprise. Trustees, even those who currently have children in the school, have responsibility to create "their children's school."
The work of trustees focuses exclusively on policies and strategies that are future-focused, and not on daily operations, which are delegated to the head of school. Trustees are called upon to contribute their time, thought, and energy, as well as financial resources, to support the viability and growth of the school.

I volunteer because the Green Fields community vibe feels like a family and I want to keep that going and to contribute in a meaningful way. This feeling of belonging to something larger than one’s self is something that I want my children to experience as well so I want to support it any way I can.
I volunteer because I believe in the power of education to transform lives. I believe this transformation is possible in a system of education with freedom for creativity and exploration; in a place where children are taught to think rather than simply “learn.” I want to support Green Fields, because it can be this place.

It is an honor to support an environment where the individuality, confidence, creativity and intelligence within each student is nurtured. Where a teacher randomly comments "I love my job," because she enjoys the energy and enthusiasm of her students. Where faculty and students alike are challenged to bring out the best in each other. Where students of all ages congregate together on the quad, in the library or at a basketball game. That I have been even a small part of the Green Fields family is a privilege.
