Planting Day at the North Euless Outdoor Learning Area

On October 20, North Euless Elementary students, parents, and teachers came together to plant more than 130 plants and trees in the North Euless Outdoor Learning Area (NEOLA). NEOLA will be a designated area on the North Euless Elementary campus devoted to Place Based Education. NEOLA will be a living classroom complete with a running stream, a pond, garden, native flora, as well as education and lesson space. Within NEOLA, teachers and students will use the environment as an integrating context across disciplines and concentrate on team taught, hands-on learning experiences focusing on problem solving projects.
