Wm. Hammerschmidt School is leading the way in improving childhood health, wellness and connecting students to the natural world. Through implementation of the first two phases of the master plan we have seen increased physical activity, connected students to environment and taught students how to grow food.
• Phase 1 - Edible Garden Construction, Spring 2013
• Phase 2 - New playground Installation, Fall 2014
The project is on track to construct the 3rd and final phase of the project during summer 2015. This will include a nature based playground, sustainable strategies to manage rainwater (rain garden and drywell), native plants, a drinking fountain, outdoor classroom, and low basketball hoops.
