Jackson-Via PTO News Flash – Outdoor Learning Centers

Outdoor Learning Centers at Jackson-Via Elementary School

On October 29th, from 12:00 – 1:00 at the Charlottesville Community
Design Center (CCDC) on the Downtown Mall, local designers Reed
Muehlman, Jessica Primm, Eugene Ryang, and Chris Woods, along with Jackson-Via staff, will present a Master Plan for Jackson-Via Elementary School’s Outdoor Learning Centers during a brown bag lunch session.

This visionary Master Plan was created during the CCDC’s annual Design Marathon held on October 2nd, with inspiration drawn from student, staff, parent, and community input. The Master Plan, on display this month at CCDC, weaves together student drawings and professional design, and includes elements such as “The Giant’s Steps” and a “Robin’s Nest”. The comprehensive plan includes elements for habitat and ecology education, food production, and spaces for children’s exploration, observation, and reflection on Jackson-Via’s expansive 20 acres.

The community is invited to join the brown bag lunch session to learn
more about this creative partnership’s vision to extend learning
outdoors at Jackson-Via.
