Outdoor Classroom

Welcome to the Alexander Outdoor Classroom


New Picnic Tables

Thanks to the Junior National Honor Society for donating the funds for materials and to Aaron Forgnone for providing the labor, we now have new picnic tables in the pavilion. This will be a great spot for teachers to teach and community members to enjoy a picnic.

Second Annual Ice Cream Social

The outdoor classroom committee hosted an ice cream social in the outdoor classroom on May 24. The event was part of the first ever Alexander Community Block Party. The free "make your own sundae" event was a big hit. Ice cream was donated by Blondie's Dip and Sip.

Families brought picnic dinners. Children had their faces painted by high school students and had a great time playing in the outdoor classroom stations. All to place en to the music of the high school jazz band.

Mileage Club in the Outdoor Classroom

Physical education classes are using the outdoor classroom fitness path for their mileage club. Students record their mileage using an iPod app.

Turtle Lays Eggs

Students were able to watch as a turtle laid her eggs in the outdoor classroom. It was a case of being the right place at the right time.

Weeders Wanted

The outdoor classroom committee is seeking volunteers to help maintain our gardens. Keeping up with weeding is especially challenging during the summer months. Volunteers are welcome any time. If you have questions, email Ellie Jinks at ejink@alexandercsd.org.
