All Harrington Students Get Outside with MOS for the 3rd Time!

For the third year in a row, all students at Harrington Elementary School got outside with Maine Outdoor School this spring. Each grade experienced a little over an hour outside exploring their nature trails and experiencing classroom content in a hands-on, place-based way.

Maine Outdoor School and Mano en Mano led a free, bilingual 4-day program series on weekends in May and June 2018 focused on learning about the importance of diversity in nature and in human communities with funding from the Maine Community Foundation. Through this program series, students not only learned about how diversity yields natural and human resilience while valuing their own differences, but also were exposed to a variety of local hiking trails and preserves that they can visit with their families and friends.
