Glen Iris Elementary is "Growing an Outdoor Classroom." We are turning the outdoors into a place to learn and well as play.
Studies have proven that students who are actively engaged in hands-on, minds-on, activities in an outdoor environment are more excited about learning and retain the information longer.
Our primary goal is to develop a fun and safe outdoor learning environment, through a cross-curricular approach that incorporates hands on, inquiry based activites that meet the Alabama course of study objectives. In this environment, children will be able to learn about Alabama's natural resoures and habitats as well as the importance of conservation.
Help Glen Iris "Grow an Outdoor Classroom." We have the students. We have the teachers. We have the vision. We need you!
