  1. ROCKRIMMON ELEMEMTARY SCHOOL RECEIVES $5,000 GRANT
    Lowe’s Donates Money for Spanish Courtyard Classroom/Garden

    The vision for a wonderful outdoor learning classroom was inspired by Mrs. Palatinus 5th grade student Sydney Nelson. It is to be built in an unused asphalt courtyard that is between our Spanish room, media center and 5th and 2nd grade classroom wing. This area is a perfect location, as it is enclosed on three sides by school walls full of windows and open on the far end. The district is encouraging schools to create sustainable outdoor learning spaces. These spaces will support environmental education, reading, ecology, biology, horticulture and natural science. They will directly support vertical articulation of the Colorado k-5 science standards as the teachers reinforce student understanding of 21st century learning.

    We look forward to getting started on the project in March 2012
