GOCO Garden Meeting #3

Today we completed our design tasks! We have submitted our ideas to the landscape architects and are excited to see the final product! Thank you, Eagle Crest Garden Design Leaders for your outstanding work!

Here are descriptions of our ideas:

My playground feature is a maze.  This feature will be made from  recycled tires.  The insides will be tall(4 tires tall), and the outsides will be shorter(1 tire tall), so kids can climb over it to get out at the end of recess. We need this feature because many people like mazes. This feature will be used by everyone so that people can race each other if they want or so people can just talk in the maze.  ~Aayush

My playground feature is a greenhouse.This feature will be used for keeping plants safe from dying in cold.The greenhouse will also make it easier to find all the plants instead of walking 10 feet to get to the next plant.This is why we need a greenhouse.  ~Bradford

My playground feature is a Tree House. My playground feature will be used for sliding, climbing, sitting, and be able to look out.This playground feature will be made out of wood, fences, plastic for slides, ladders (wood). This playground feature will be used by anyone that is not afraid of heights.    ~Joshua

My playground feature is a garden.This playground feature will be used for food, prettiness, and Happiness.We need this feature because it can teach kids how to take care of plants.This feature will be made of wood.This feature will be used by kids and grown-ups.   ~Molly

Our playground feature is a buddy bench. This feature will be used for people that have no friends to play with. So you sit, then someone will come over and ask you if you want to play with them, so you can play with them. We need this feature so that people can make new friends. This feature will be made from wood and will be painted.             ~Idea by Presley, written by Aayush

My playground feature is a outdoor classroom! This outdoor classroom will be used for learning when you have fresh air. This outdoor classroom will be used by teachers, and students. This outdoor classroom will include rocks, benches, a whiteboard, platform, and it will have walls but only walls no ceilings.  ~Sophie

My playground feature is the leadership wall with handprints. This playground feature will let people admire the wall of handprints.  We need this feature because some kids like finding their handprint and playing I spy. That is why I think we should have a leadership wall.   ~Story

My playground feature is the play structure and this is why we need it.  The play structure will be used for many things like games and activities.  We need this feature because everyone would love it with a zip line, a rock wall and a mini track.  This feature will be used by lots of different people because of the zipline and rock wall.   ~Sydney

GOCO Garden Meeting #2

Today we created a list of schoolyard items that we found the most in other students’ drawings, or that we thought were important to include in our design. Then we drew and wrote about the schoolyard features.

December

December is the service month. Full of helpful classes and kids.

Kindergarten is collecting pjs for foster homes.  Scholastic is donating one book per pajama to help.  Any pjs have to be new and we need girl and boy pjs such as footsie, two piece or any type for any gender.  We want kids to be comfortable when they go to sleep.  Thank you to Ben and Ellie for giving us this information.
Second grade is having a stuffed animal drive.  Ella, Marco and Sophia told us that they are collecting stuffed animals to give to the African Empakasi school. Any stuffed animal in good to great condition will be accepted.  When asked how they would get the stuffed animals to Africa they replied, “How are we supposed to know, the teachers decide that.”

Leadership assembly

Over 450 kids go to Empakisi Primary School and most of them don’t get lunch! Well, Eagle Crest is helping to solve that problem by a sustainable lunch program. We are raising money to buy chickens and helping to build a green house. The green house will provide food like kale, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, beans and more. Can you imagine a life with almost no electricity? Luckily a college student (Kevin) installed two solar panels that helped us Skype with our sister school. Kevin also helped Empakisi school get water by fixing the water pipes. Some of those kids walk 3 miles to school! Can you believe walking past wild animals like lions and jaguars on your way to school? It would be so scary!
Eagle Crest is very proud to support Empakisi school!
