Burton Ettinger is a green oasis!

Back to stories

This school has an amazing setting for outdoor learning. Burton Ettinger has an amazing variety of raised garden beds, including a rain garden, veggie gardens, and a butterfly garden! Did you know both teachers and students benefit from outdoor learning? And it’s energy efficient, too!

The Excel students had some other great ideas about how to use less energy, including turning out the lights when we leave the room. We worked together to evaluate how many lights were in use, and how many were needed. Then the group took a tour around the school to check out the energy use and we demonstrated some energy efficiency skills by turning out the lights in classrooms that were not in use. This group is so active and smart, they ended the day in the great outdoors enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.

Great job Burton Ettinger Excel!
