We’re proud to announce the recertification of our Outdoor Classroom for 2020 as a certified Nature Explore Classroom. The Outdoor Classroom weaves together connections between the child, supportive adults and the environment, where children may practice hands-on and minds-on learning. Our classroom was certified in 2018.
Since those early days, we have had a former student-lead his troop in building the school a storage unit in the Outdoor Classroom as his Eagle Scout Project, parents have created fairy houses along our ¼ mile trail, and our staff has added learning and activity stations, too. We have added whimsical signs and even held a contest to name the creek that runs throughout the property. It is now officially recognized as The Wildcat Waterway!
Our Keep Forsyth Beautiful Green School Sign Arrived
We have also enjoyed working with a local community organization, Keep Forsyth Beautiful, in learning about the environment, local watershed and participating in frog research.
In Spring of 2020, our school was recognized as Gold Level in their Green School Award Program. Our Green School sign arrived this week, and we are excited to display it at the school!
Our students use the classroom throughout the year in so many ways to deepen their love of nature, extend their STEM learning, draw, read, collect leaves, and enjoy music. The possibilities are endless….
