"The Mountain View Whisman School District is so fortunate to be able to offer Living Classroom lessons in all our elementary schools as well as to our 6th graders.
Living Classroom's high-quality, outdoor-based learning provides our students with valuable standards-aligned science lessons. They are highly engaged in the lessons because of the hands-on learning opportunities in each lesson.
Students learn so much and have so much fun while learning - and our teachers can't wait to sign up for lessons each season.
Living Classroom is an important partner with us in our students’ education; as a district we are proud supporters of Living Classroom."
"We are so grateful that Living Classroom is able to provide engaging hands-on, outdoor, nature-based lessons for all MVWSD students. We appreciate these educators inspiring students to learn and value the natural world. The lessons reinforce how what the students are learning and doing is relevant to their lives."
"We are excited about the opportunities Living Classroom is providing to our students to get outside and plant, harvest and taste many different types of food. This exposure is one of the very best ways to connect children to the sources of their food and learn what healthy eating is all about."
The letter below was written to a school board in a large local school district to advocate for Living Classroom. While we have removed the district's name, Peggy's comments remain a passionate testimonial from a teacher's perspective - of the benefits of Living Classroom for elementary school students. Her comments are authentic and unsolicited - and very much appreciated.
