School Yard

Temple Heights,

“We are looking for a school-wide program that addresses: a beautiful environment, pride in our school, studying concepts related to gardening, learning about farm to table, recycling, conservation, and working in the outdoors.” ~Kim Morton

Our Story

Our students have naturally gravitated to outdoor learning spaces with our 1:1 iPad initiative. They enjoy working in the sunshine and in the garden…but we don’t have sustainable gardens. As personalized learning projects, students have expressed an interest in planting and growing. They have studied sunflowers, varied growing conditions, and shared their work with classmates and online. We have sporadically purchased garden boxes, planted seeds, and conducted various other small projects.
