Teaching kids to care about the outside of our school is just as important as the inside. The Environmental Committee was established to not only beautify Level Creek but also to serve as an outside learning area.
In the spring of 2019, Girl Scout Troop #3315 (all Level Creek 5th graders at the time) rebuilt our gardens. Conveniently located beside one of the main play sets (and more importantly, a water source), kids love to watch the garden grow. Each season our committee works with each grade level lead to determine what should be planted in their garden. Then, students have to opportunity at recess to come and plant in their own garden – HOW COOL! They enjoy watching it grow and then harvesting it. Teachers often take items grown in their gardens back to their rooms and allow the students to taste the fruits of their labor, literally.
This committee is also responsible for all the beautiful flower pots planted outside the upper and lower level entrances. Your student likely helped in that, too.
