[LIBERTY] – Join Sullivan Renaissance for a discussion on how to enhance students’ learning and school experience through beautification of school grounds. The free seminar will be held on Wednesday, November 4 at 6:00 p.m. at the CVI Center in Liberty.
A panel of teachers, administrators, volunteers and parents who have participated in different programs will share their experience and its impact:
Lisa Layman, Principal at St. Peter’s Regional School
Maria Pappas, Parent Volunteer at St. Peter’s Regional School
Jane Sorensen, EPIC Program Director at Monticello Central School
Thomas Vorstadt, Teacher at Eldred Central School
· Lisa Layman, Principal at St. Peter’s Regional School
· Maria Pappas, Parent Volunteer at St. Peter’s Regional School
· Jane Sorensen, EPIC Program Director at Monticello Central School
· Thomas Vorstadt, Teacher at Eldred Central School
Research shows that the design and care of school grounds influences children’s attitudes and behavior. Engaging students in projects at their schools encourages them to examine their own environment, assess how it is used and how it could be improved.
The seminar is open to everyone, but groups who may want to attend include:
· Students wanting to take an active role in enhancing their school
· Parents interested in lending support to their child’s school experience
· Teachers open to an experiential learning opportunity
· Administrators seeking grants to enhance school grounds
Space is limited, pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be provided.
