Outdoor Classroom


Check Out the Rebecca New Memorial Outdoor Classroom!

A big thank you to the GHES PTA, Bojangles, Carolina Handling, and Carolina Landscaping for helping make our vision of an Outdoor Classroom Area become a reality!  With this outdoor classroom, students will have the opportunity to explore the outside garden area and aquatic ecosystem (we are also hoping to have butterfly plants and other ecosystems close to the area) and then teachers will be able to follow up immediately with a learning activity or lesson. This provides for continuity that can sometimes be lost during transition times. This outdoor classroom can also be used by students and teachers as a change of scenery from their classroom. Rebecca New was a beloved art teacher at Gold Hill who died tragically in August of 2013, but left behind a legacy of creative thinking and had a huge influence on our outdoor garden space. She would have been thrilled to have this outdoor classroom space for her students to work, as I’m sure many teachers and students will be here at GHES. We will have a sign in this space to share this information about our dedication of the outdoor classroom to Ms. New.
