We are excited to update our WWE families on the upcoming progress of the Outdoor Learning Environment at West Woods Elementary. We anticipate completing Phase 2 of this project over the 2017 Summer. Specific projects include Playground Pit #1, Bike Racks, Outdoor Classroom/Eating Area, and the start of the Outdoor Learning Garden Center. Please refer to the diagram below for more details.
