GREENFIELD — The Greenfield Center School will celebrate its 25th anniversary all day on Saturday.

At 2 p.m., alumni and their families are invited to a reunion to reconnect with each other and the school.

At 4 p.m., there will be a special recognition of the founders, Ruth Charney, Marlynn Clayton, Jay Lord, and Chip Wood.

A first time GCS Social Justice Award will be presented to Antioch New England. This award is given to an institution whose work is aligned with the Center School’s mission to “…integrate high quality academics with ethical decision making to develop the skills and convictions for creating just communities.”

Next there will be a moment of silence remembering people honored with plantings in the GCS Memorial Garden. A time capsule filled by students, teachers, and parents will be buried. The presentations will end with the unveiling of an 8-foot by 5-foot mosaic sign created by GCS children with the help of GCS teacher, Lee Oldenburg.

A potluck dinner follows with music by the GCS Chorus, Alumna Santina King ’04, and the PVPA Rock Ensemble. Campfire songs and stories wrap up the festivities.

The community is invited.
