DETAILS: Students at Northeast College High School will be using their new outdoor classroom space to celebrate all the learning and work they did this school year. Earlier this year, students approached staff and faculty about an idea where they could expand and improve their school environment by using nature. The school broke ground on the new outdoor classroom space in May, and now students are inviting the public to learn more about some of the projects they completed this school year.
- The building of the outdoor classroom space
- A bathroom painting project that includes building awareness around mental health supports
- A pilot program of student-teacher collaboration in assessing the climate of the classroom
Several partners and donors have been instrumental in supporting the learning and work done at Northeast College High School this year. “Rochester Education Foundation is a proud supporter of students’ dreams, and we have truly been inspired by student leaders who helped designed the outdoor classroom space,” said Rochester Education Foundation’s Executive Director Stuart Hencke. “This project will leave a legacy for future generations of students.”
Reliant Credit Union has donated over $2,000 dollars to the outdoor classroom space at Northeast. “Reliant has a passion for helping members in the community pursue their purpose and achieve their aspirations,” said Amy Calabrese, Reliant’s Chief Brand Officer. “The students at Northeast are ambassadors for the future, and we feel honored as a credit union to help invest in their educational experience.”
