Opening Sunflower Elementary School’s Signature Outdoor Classroom
Students, faculty, administrators, Board of Education and the community members gathered this month to officially cut the ribbon on this year’s Learnscape® at Shawnee Mission School District’s Sunflower Elementary School.
Last year, I got to participate in the charrette at Hollis + Miller. I was so excited that I couldn’t sleep the night before. And now all our dreams have become a reality. Thank you so much to everyone at Hollis + Miller!”
– Maya Lance, 4th grade student
Teachers and students couldn’t wait to get out and put Learnscape® to use. Classes studied solar energy, social studies and conducted writing workshops inspired by the fall colors and weather. Hollis + Miller is excited to see how Sunflower Elementary’s teachers and students continue to utilize Learnscape® for all types of learning opportunities.
This new outdoor classroom will undoubtedly inspire students to develop project-based learning challenges that will positively impact their school and community.
