OUR NEW OUTDOOR CLASSROOM
Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School is a recipient of a 2014 Lowe’s
Toolbox for Education grant from The Lowe’s Charitable and Educational
Faculty member Kaitlin Fielder wrote
a grant proposal to the LCEF to fund the creation of a ‘green classroom’ at the
school. The grant award totals $4,900
and will assist the school to make a vision become reality.
“I’m very, very proud of Mrs. Fielder for pursuing this opportunity for
our school” said Superintendent Scott Osborne.
“Creation of a Green Classroom on our school property will benefit our
K-12 students and faculty, but also our entire community. We’re surrounded by these beautiful
Adirondacks, so this grant will help us create a sustainable structure for
outdoor education and using our surroundings for education.”
The Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant
program is in its 9th year of supporting schools and communities. The program has provided over $35 million to
more than 8,000 schools across the country.
“We’re very fortunate to be one of those
schools,” Osborne said.
