Mr. Arlt’s Classroom Edit display name

  • River's Edge Academy
  • Saint Paul, MN
  • More than half of students from low‑income households

Our outdoor classroom was built in 2012 and includes a garden (crops and native plants), a chicken coop with 6 chickens, an old hoop shed, picnic tables, a rusted out firepit, and a broken pizza oven. For it to be a better learning space and to encourage students to be outside more often, we need to upgrade the outdoor classroom. We would like to make our hoop shed into a greenhouse for students to grow their own plants all year round. This will bring more local food and educational opportunities. All of the gardening tools are in the hoop shed right now, so we would like a tool shed to make space for the students in the soon-to-be greenhouse. A fire pit will bring students together during school events, and build a better community at our school. We would like to rebuild our pizza oven and have students make pizza and bread using ingredients from the garden. Finally, we would like to plant chicken friendly plants by the chicken coop for the chickens to interact with and eat. Our values come into play in every aspect of our school, but we would like to see it be implemented more in our outdoor classroom and these upgrades will support us.
