Families dancing in the GVS Barn

Barn Dance

Come join us in the barn in September for a family fun event. Dudley and Jacqueline Laufman, renowned fiddlers and callers, show us all a great time at a traditional New England Contra-dance. Bring a potluck dish to share. This is a not-to-miss event!


Family Night

Students demonstrate their work for family and friends. This is a great occasion for parents to see the hard work that he children perform on a daily basis. Parents are impressed with the understanding the children possess of very difficult concepts through the use of the Montessori methods.
