Giving Back: North Roebuck Needs Your Help

North Roebuck Elementary School has been planning and fundraising for an outdoor classroom for more than eight years now. The green learning space has been a dream of Principal Irene O’Neil (and a committee of teachers, as well) for years, and that dream is soon to become a reality. Naturescapes, Inc. recently began construction on the courtyard that will soon be a thriving natural setting for the 500-plus students and their teachers to take their work outdoors to learn about plants and nature, to do art in a beautiful environment and to simply get outdoors, a foreign concept to many of them.
