Science Garden Program & Outdoor Classroom

The Lafayette Science Garden Program  is one of our students’ favorite things about our school!  In 2016  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, which includes microscopes, terrariums, invertebrate habitats, collaboration space, books and so much more, we taught over 120 classes  before we went remote giving teachers and students the opportunity to create and learn outside the bounds of normal class work.  We continued our growth with the addition of a hydroponics towers, more outdoor classroom space, integration into the new state science curriculum and more fun!
