Crozet Elementary Getting a New Outdoor Classroom

The Newsplex reports:

Crozet Elementary School received $2,590 to build an outdoor science classroom in the form of a rain garden habitat.

Very cool.

Update 14 July 2013: I asked Ms. Crummie, Crozet Elementary’s principal, and she responded quickly:

“Our students will build it beginning in the fall with the help of Rob Winstead – an architect and Carol Heiser – Va Dept of Forestry.  It will have a weather system connected with it.  Going to be where the biofill is near the parent drop off area.  All grades will use it connected to their science curriculum with the use of technology – will begin using it once construction is done.

We are excited about it!”
