On November 8th, the students and staff of Mathewson Elementary School in Milford received a very special gift – the Halle’s Hope Outdoor Classroom. The students at Mathewson voted on a name for the outdoor space, and going forward it will be known as the STAR Classroom.
The bright and colorful outdoor instructional space was designed with round seating areas, surrounded by a masonry wall suitable for students to sit upon and read, draw and engage in other academic activities. A series of stars was embedded into the flooring area and filled with bright colors. The artwork came from an actual art piece Halle had created in 2012.
It is our HOPE students experience the joy of learning – in all environments – and are able to realize their truest potential.
