Marshall Early Learning Center earns environmental recognition
(09/19/2016) - Marshall Early Learning Center is named a 2016 Virginia Naturally School for its efforts in increasing student environmental awareness and stewardship. Working with a master gardener, the preschool and kindergarten students cultivated and planted a community garden which yielded bushels of squash, cucumbers and tomatoes for the students and the community. Students and staff also planted a flower and plant garden and created outdoor learning spaces. In addition to applying the knowledge that they learned in the classroom, students gained meaning experiences tending to their crops from planting to harvesting.
Marshall Early Learning Center is one of 66 schools in the state to earn recognition through the program administered by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the state Department of Education.
