WEST ALLIS, Wis. (CBS 58) – Students at General Mitchell Elementary School in West Allis are taking their learning outside.
Mayor Dan Devin cut the ribbon to celebrate the opening of a new outdoor classroom Tuesday morning.
Fifth graders helped with all aspects of the classroom like making blueprints, design, and construction.
One student says he’s excited to have a classroom outside.
“It gets old when we are in the building and sometimes people just want to work outside and not everyone wants to sit inside on chairs,” said 5th grader Xavier Siriphone.
The outdoor classroom has enough seating options so multiple classrooms can be outside at the same time.
School officials say the project was part of their commitment to teaching students about science technology, engineering, art, and math.
