Join Highcrest students in the Outdoor Classroom for recess. We need volunteers to help school staff members supervise children as they play games, do work and enjoy the beautiful prairie and woodland in the school’s courtyard. Sign up here!
Gardens and Outdoor Classroom
The Outdoor Classroom is a student-maintained garden filled with native prairie plants, woodland flowers, and vegetables that is currently celebrating its tenth year at Highcrest! It is open at recess every school day (weather permitting) until Thanksgiving and reopens in the spring. Students who choose to spend their recess in the Outdoor Classroom may explore, study, help with garden work, play games, or just enjoy this beautiful, peaceful space.
