Bethlehem Elementary students, teachers enjoying new ‘outdoor classroom’


BETHLEHEM, W.Va. (WTRF) — Students at Bethlehem Elementary School are enjoying some classroom time outdoors, thanks to the Chevron and the Benedum Foundation.

Months after applying for a $7,500 grant, the elementary school has officially opened its outdoor classroom.

It has multiple tables under a shelter, allowing students to enjoy the outdoors while learning many subjects.

Students and teachers are both raving about their new classroom.

We can learn our ABC’s.

This has been my dream — the outdoor classroom for probably 20 years. I thought, ‘how wonderful it would be if we could have one up here and use it.’
