In the spring of 2016, five Springwater students hosted a student fundraiser to build a new outdoor classroom. And now, months later, we have our Green Classroom!
With the support of the students, community, and school, Springwater is providing space for the students to study gardening and science outdoors, all year long.
Each class has contributed to brainstorming what they would like to see, grow, and do in the space. The students have imagined a learning space with tables and seats where they can write and experiment on, plants surrounding them as they study, and raised beds to grow plants in every season. Each grade will help build in the learning space, cultivating it into a collaborative learning space from Kindergarten to 8th grade.
