11th grade NWHS students from Mrs. Murray's Environmental Problems Class volunteer and work collaboratively with Mrs. Yori to create and teach a lesson about clouds.
Later, preschoolers design and create cloud pictures in the hands on activity.
The pictures are displayed at the Spring 2013 Art Show.
In 2012 Northwestern School District received a Department of Environmental Protection Environmental Education Grant. A portion of the grant involved funds that were used to purchase and install a weather station on Springfield Elementary School. Since the addition of the weather station fourth grade students monitor and study weather.
