Outdoor Classroom - New Addition at Hemby Bridge
Hemby Bridge students and teachers are eager to use the latest addition on campus – the outdoor classroom (located by the gym). The outdoor classroom came to life in discussions between the PTO, faculty and administration about new ways to impact student learning with the facilities we have. This space is an alternative and fun place for children to have class and learn outside of the traditional classroom. Teachers will be able to bring their students outside for science instruction, reading, partner work, and other activities.
This was a multi-year fundraising project and went through many versions. In the summer of 2012, ground was broken and the classroom was completed for the start of the school year. We are excited to have been a part of this project--one of many that the PTO has supported for the students of Hemby Bridge.
