Outdoor Learning Classroom

Our elementary embraces an outdoor learning classroom with annual learning experiences that include science and social studies explorations at the National Wildlife Refuge in Muleshoe, Palo Duro Canyon State Park, and Carlsbad Caverns National Park. We pride ourselves on a safe learning environment that will nurture creativity and individuality, with a program or opportunity to meet the interests and learning needs of all students. We host many outdoor events with surrounding communities in hopes of introducing more students to the splendor of the great outdoors that they otherwise might not have had.

Our outdoor learning classroom kicks off beginning in 3rd grade with a 1-day trip to the National Wildlife Refuge in Muleshoe. Our 4th grade takes a 3 day/2-night trip to Palo Duro Canyon State Park and our 5th grade takes a 3-day/2-night trip to Carlsbad Caverns National Park. These trips are full of stations and learning events where we enjoy canoeing, hiking, and camping out; spending the night in the outdoors. On these two trips we have learning stations during the day. We work the math on the trail between distances, learn about history of the area, have science discussions, etc. Each evening we camp out and during the day we hike, canoe, speak to wildlife biologist, experts, etc. that teach us different aspects of the outdoors.
