The PTA spends between $15,000 and $20,000 to provide an outdoor garden classroom. Learn more about the program below

Los Cerritos GARDEN Program

 
Los Cerritos PTA partners with the nonprofit organization GroundEducation, who provides outdoor garden,
science, and sustainability lessons that support a broad range of CA Content Standards, including Language Arts, Science, History-Social Studies, and Visual Arts.
 
All students receive a monthly one hour lesson designed to reinforce what students are learning in the classroom, providing important hands-on experiences in the context of the natural world.  
 
Lessons also support the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards by engaging students in research-based thinking routines designed to help scaffold learning through observation, explanation, reasoning, making connections, considering different viewpoints, and wondering.
