Washington Rose Elementary School was awarded funds to build a Reading Garden, through the Lowe’s Toolbox for Education Grant program funded by Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation. The Washington Rose Reading Garden project will transform the schoolyard into a classroom and area for quiet reading. The Reading Garden will allow students to experiment with growing natural resources such as fruits and vegetables in addition to connecting students with nature, students learn valuable gardening skills and agriculture concepts that will enhance their educational goals and help develop a strong sense of personal and social responsibility. Through hands-on learning and experiential projects teachers are able to incorporate core subjects such as natural and social sciences, math, language arts and nutrition.
