Students at Mt. View have a chance to be immersed into a rewarding learning environment that fosters care for the environment and the community. In this environment students will learn about green technologies and stewardship for their community. This extended learning beyond the traditional classroom gives students a hands-on opportunity for success. The outdoor classroom will be built on the three acres behind Mt. View. Science instructor, Paul Uzzi, has visions for local plants and trees to be marked for nature walks, a water collection device for irrigation, and many other “green” technologies.
Mt. View would like to thank the many donors that have helped make this outdoor classroom a possibility. Thank you to T.L. Brewer and the Gonzaga Civil Engineering Club for designing the building plans, to the Rathdrum Class of 1956 and to John Jacquot for their monetary donations, to John Matheson for donating lumber, to Don Evans for donating electrical services, and to Bouten Construction for donating the foundation supplies. We believe that hands-on, extended learning opportunities are crucial to the success of our students in today’s society, and we thank you for helping us make this classroom a reality.
