Posted on 05/24/2016

Pocomoke, MD, May 26, 2016 - Pocomoke Elementary School is a recipient of the 2016 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant in the amount of $7,945.00 that will fund our “Thrive with Five Outdoor Learning Classroom” project. Through the financial generosity of the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation, and in partnership with our local Pocomoke City Lowe’s employee family, Pocomoke Elementary will offer an innovative approach to learning through the fresh air and sunshine of a sensory-rich outdoor learning environment!

Our goal targets use of outdoor sights, sounds, smells and textures to add personal relevancy to learning by linking academic standards to real world needs and concerns such as hunger, resource conservation and climate change.
