CDES Courtyard Update
In the summer of 2016, CDES was awarded a grant from the Chesapeake Bay Trust Foundation to revitalize our courtyard. The funding will be used to plant a native garden, build a rain garden and partner with Environmental Concern educators to provide students and staff with the support and knowledge we need to create a sustainable outside classroom and habitat. The PTO purchased beautiful tables and paid for the replacement of the concrete. Here are the next steps towards our outside classroom project in our courtyard:
- February 17th: EC will provide PD for staff and begin working with a group of 4th and 5th graders to plan the design of the rain garden
- February 23rd: Pickering Creek will work with 4th graders to develop a design for the native garden
- March/April TBA: Volunteers needed to assist us with the planting of the native garden and build of the rain garden
Please email me if you are interested in volunteering your time to assist our students with our courtyard projects at. Thank you!
