This year, the PTO would like to propose two potential options for capital spend, and we want your feedback!
The Living Classroom pond is in need of maintenance. The liner is disintegrating, the cinder block walls limit access to the pond during lessons, and the chain link fence obstructs the pond view and is too tight to the pond. The soil in the vegetable garden needs to be changed out due to powdery mildew, and the sprinkler system should be upgraded from overhead watering to underground watering to prevent mildew in the future. Option 1 allows the PTO to spend funds updating and enhancing the Living Classroom pond and surrounding garden space.
There is unused space in Monroe’s basement that could house a “kinetic classroom”. The kinetic classroom would provide students an opportunity for light exercise, which could help put students in the receptive state required for learning. Option 2 allows the PTO to spend funds purchasing tools to build this movement space.
