This is the image for the news article titled Clute Intermediate Celebrates New Outdoor ClassroomThanks to a $5,000 grant sponsored by Lowe’s Toolbox for Education and teacher Haley Ruthstrom, Clute Intermediate now has an inviting outdoor classroom for students to experience learning outside four walls. Mrs. Ruthstrom shared her goal of providing an inviting space for students to take their learning and imaginations to the next level and give students a hands-on approach to their learning.

A highlight of the space includes wifi accessibility so teachers can easily and seamlessly incorporate technology into their lesson, allowing students the opportunity to not only learn something new, but actually experience it. Another important feature of the space is it’s larger size enabling collaboration between grade levels, classes and subjects. Teachers can provide large group instruction and have room to facilitate group problem solving.

Haley along with her husband Alex both played a large role in constructing the outdoor classroom. “We are both graduates of Brazosport ISD and are proud to give back to the district that molded us,” Haley said.

This is yet another example of how BISD is striving in innovative ways to provide exceptional learning experiences in quality environments.
