Laquey R-5 was awarded an Outdoor Classroom Grant in the amount of $2500.00. A few years ago our school administration had the foresight to preserve approximately 40 acres of wilderness just behind the school. There are prairies and old growth forest intersected with marked trails and ravines. The grant money was used to build walkways in some of the low lying areas that tend to become muddy and to build bridges across the ravines. Benches were built along the trails so that hikers can rest and enjoy the solitude. Benches are also arranged so that teachers can sit an entire classroom in one area and conduct lessons. Maps of the area are available in Mr. Podurgal's science classroom. Maps and directional instruction will be up on the trails very soon.
