The community is invited to help Agnes G. Hodge celebrate the opening of its new outdoor classroom on September 14th from 5-7 pm. The school was able to raise funds through the work of its Parent's Association, the efforts of our Student Council, and through a grant received from the province as part of its Ontario 150 celebrations.
We used the funds to transform our kindergarten area into an outdoor classroom that can be used by all students in the school. The work involved moving a fence to incorporate more green areas, using a hill to create outdoor seating for lessons, the inclusion of natural play structures (logs, rocks, etc.) and natural plantings.
We will also be having our Meet the Teacher at the same time to encourage as many people from our community to come out and celebrate the exciting transformation!
