The Arroyo Garden

The Arroyo Garden is a 4,000 square foot interactive, outdoor learning space that brings 4th and 5th grade curriculum to life— from science to social studies, to reading and real-world problem solving. Through their garden work, Arroyo students will develop their leadership skills and deepen their understanding of environmental stewardship. Best of all, the garden space is a fun, quiet place for meeting, reading, reflection and discovery. Thanks to the joint efforts of the CMS/Arroyo PTA, SCSD and SCEF, students and staff can use this outdoor, organic classroom for standards-based lessons and project-based learning, as well as exciting new club programs and community service projects.

Our Curriculum

Parent volunteers lead the class through a fun 50-minute garden experience. Garden leaders teach a brief lesson and help the kids complete an associated hands-on activity, using new garden curriculum and with the help of parent assistants.

The Garden Coordinator will be in touch with leaders and helpers before the lesson to provide all the details on what the class will cover.
