Big changes are on the horizon for Lapham's Garden – we will soon expand into a true Outdoor Classroom through the Growing Outdoor Classrooms grant which offers a treasure trove of planning and design resources plus $8,000 in funding!
Why are garden-based learning activities such a big deal? What is an outdoor classroom? What's the research saying? What will a new Outdoor Classroom offer Lapham students, teachers and our community? 
Find out at next week's Lapham-Marquette Parent Teacher Group (PTG) Monthly Meeting. And, as always, enjoy free Roman Candle pizza, made this time with fresh veggies from Lapham's garden (we are requesting vegan pizzas too) and free Red Caboose childcare!
