Schoolyard Garden

  • Rogers Elementary is excited to announce that we have  built a schoolyard garden!  All grade levels, kindergarten through 5th grade, will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on, standard-based curriculum through our schoolyard garden.  


    Research shows that a schoolyard garden:

    • Provides students with real-life,  hands-on outdoor learning experiences.
    • Helps students develop an appreciation and stewardship for the environment.
    • Increases science achievement scores.
    • Increases students’ knowledge and  interest in eating healthier.
    • Provides highly engaging learning activities that support our  academic standards. 
    • Improves social skills and behaviors.
