Norton Park Elementary Opens New Outdoor Classroom

Norton Park Elementary School celebrated the opening of its new outdoor classroom Sept. 15, a two-year project that now provides students a space to take their learning outside. The outdoor classroom, surrounded by a garden, and nature pathways, was funded with a $500 Georgia Wildlife Grant and two years of fundraising, donations and more than 450 volunteer hours.

At the “Back to School Picnic” on Sept. 15, principal Doug Daugherty recognized the volunteers that built the covered outdoor classroom. A special recognition and tribute was given to architect Jack Levine and Angie Bolton with the IBM team for their efforts. Levine developed the building plans. A volunteer team from IBM gave their time and effort on Saturdays during the summer to build the structure. IBM also donated $1000 to the Norton Park Literacy program. As a National Wildlife Federation Schoolyard Habitat, Norton Park students will have opportunities to survey, investigate, and enjoy the outdoors, sharing the space with Canadian Geese, rabbits, squirrels, butterflies, nesting bluebirds, and other wildlife.

    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
