Keep Jackson Beautiful, Inc. Jackson, MS
Keep Jackson Beautiful, Inc. has just dedicated a “Think Green Outdoor Classroom” at Lake Elementary School in Jackson, MS. The outdoor classroom will provide teachers and students the opportunity to bring learning to an outdoor setting. The children will learn about growing vegetables, wildlife habitats, science, weather, and music as well as other environmental lessons. This classroom was made possible by a Think Green Grant awarded to Keep Jackson Beautiful from Waste Management. The children are already learning in the classroom and are using the stage to play violins taught to them by a Mr. Hawkins, a member of the symphony orchestra here in Jackson. The children are looking forward to lots of great learning days in their new classroom area. Thank you Waste Management!
