This year JK 103 decided to turn the small courtyard attached to the classroom into a usable space. The students planted greenery, built IKEA planters, created a reading area and added an ivy wall. They voted on different names for the courtyard and the name that received the most votes was, "The Calm Courtyard."
The students wanted the space to be usable for other Early Childhood classes and created a set of rules to ensure that all who come to explore would be safe. It is a space for friends to meet, breathe in the fresh air and appreciate the beauty of an outdoor classroom. We look forward to maintaining this space for future students to come and explore!
