  •  New landscaping in middle school courtyard.

    HMS Courtyard Going Strong!

    In the spring of 2021, plans to renovate the Haslett Middle School courtyard into an outdoor classroom began with a Green Infrastructure Grant from the Environmental Commission of Meridian Township. Since the student-led project began, the native plant rain garden has grown, students are learning about sustainability, and teachers are finding new ways to use the space to teach outside. Bridget Booth (Courtyard Coordinator) takes her EcoAction students out to the courtyard regularly for environmental lessons and opportunities to manage the garden. With help from the Builder’s Club, the Conservation Club members assist with continued design and maintenance.
