Green Fields Country Day School hosts an open house for families of prospective students in grades K-5 from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7.

"Those who are just curious to see other educational options are also welcome," a release said.

Tours of the 22-acre campus, classroom visits and meetings with teachers and principals are available. Refreshments are provided.

At Green Fields Lower School, class sizes average 15 students, every child has physical education every day, French and Spanish are instructed through the fifth grade, and music, art and drama classes are offered in rotation. The third-grade class learns to care for chickens, gather eggs and sell them, raising money for a non-profit of their choice. There is recess, too.

The school is located at 6000 N. Camino de la Tierra in northwest Tucson, near Orange Grove and Shannon. For more information on Green Fields, call 297-2288 or visit http://www.greenfields.org">www.greenfields.org.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
