An exciting project is in the works that will benefit our students and community! A 30 by 30 foot greenhouse project at the high school is receiving local support and is moving closer to reality. This "Green Hawks" project, as we are calling it, was presented at a recent Board of Education meeting. The project has received support from the Corning Foundation with a pledge of $300,000 toward the $497,000 total project cost. All credit here goes to the 'originals' meaning those teachers who created this conceptually many years back, and Assistant Superintendent Michelle Caulfield, whose energy kept this idea alive. Read about it here. One other component of the project is solar panels on the roof in the area near the greenhouse.
The project will benefit all students K to 12 as there are plans to make sure all students can visit and learn in this space during the year.
