High School Outdoor Classroom/Garden to Host Event May 9

The event will feature dinner and ice cream. The learning space is already taking root in the high school courtyard.


The high school courtyard is a space for all subjects, a learning space.

Already students are growing vegetables and plants in raised beds, monitoring the growth and studying pH levels.

Soon there will be more. A butterfly garden and butterflies. Song and dance. Drama and poetry. 

The school's Science, Technology, Engineering and Math coordinator, Brandy Wilbur, has woven the garden into the STEM program.

There will be lessons in chemistry, biology and math through soil analysis, water quality, growth rates.

Buck Harris' health students took to a courtyard nook Wednesday for class.

And on May 9, the school will host a dinner and ice cream event to benefit the learning space.

People interested in attending the Outdoor Classroom Commencement should email Joseph Bennett with the amount of people in their party. Contact him at Bennett@swampscott.k12.ma.us
