Lafayette Science Garden & Outdoor Classroom


The Lafayette Science Garden Program is one of our students’ favorite things about our school!  Last year we were excited to announce the donor partnership with The Robins Family Trust to expand our science garden.  Because of this generous donation, Lafayette has integrated the garden into every aspect of our curriculum, including art, science, writing, and social studies. With the addition of  a dedicated classroom, we taught over 120 classes last year giving teachers and students the opportunity to create and learn outside the bounds of normal class work.  This year we will continue our growth with the addition of a hydroponics towers , more outdoor classroom space, integration into the new state science curriculum and more fun!

We cannot leave out a big thank you to our Principal, Mrs. Chaput, for helping so much with room set up and to the Robins Family Trust, without their support, none of this would have happened.  As always, the Garden Team welcomes parent visits and help!
