Bringing the classroom outside

Written by 

out sittingwallHighlands Middle School became home to a new outdoor classroom earlier this month.

The school’s old courtyard was revamped with a stone sitting wall inlaid with artistic features such as ceramic birds and flowers and surrounded by newly planted landscaping and greenery. The classroom will also have a weather station placed there and will be geared for outdoor instruction and activities for students.

A celebration for the classroom will take place from 1-2 p.m. June 10 at the Highlands Middle School. Members of the community will congregate to drink lemonade, take a tour of the project and learn how instructors will use it in the coming year. The project was built with nearly $35,000 in donations and grant funding from local organizations.
