News and Features

  • Brandenburg Elementary, in conjunction with the Parents Step Ahead Mission is currently working on a project that will become the BBurg Outdoor Learning Courtyards & Garden!!


    The goal of this multi-phase project is to recognize, educate, enable and empower parents and students to take a proactive role in educational and personal development.


    In an effort to augment what is taught in the classroom, Brandenburg is creating multiple unused areas on campus into opportunities for student and community engagement.  


    The BBurg Garden phase will be developed in the back of the school and will be an ongoing garden of seasonal and nutritional plants that K-5 students will grow, maintain and enjoy.  Students will be incorporating STEM related projects, conduct research and have areas for collaboration and reflection.


    As part of this initiative, our school will be participating in the Carton2Garden contest.  Through this contest we could have a chance to win a $5000 grand prize from Carton2Garden Spring Contest that could potentially be utilized for a greenhouse over the garden area!
