Walking Paths & Outdoor Learning

The walking path and outdoor learning area is now complete. The projected included a 1/8th mile walking path, many beautiful trees, benches, and an outdoor learning pavilion for teacher and student use. Money for the project was donated by both Cargill and Dannon, with design and labor provided by local high school FFA organizations. Special thanks to the West Elementary PTA, faculty, and administration and other business partners for their support of this remarkable undertaking.

  • Hello! My name is Ina Mogensen and I’m a recently retired TCSD 3rd grade teacher. Currently I’m working at Stansbury Park ES as an AmeriCorps Literacy Aide. As part of my job I need to do several hours of community service. While looking for an interesting project, I came across the West Elementary Walking path and outdoor learning area program. I only know what is on this web site, but it sounds very interesting.

    I spent several years in Clark County School District (Las Vegas) as a K-6 Math/Science specialist, and am quite familiar with the National Science Standards and the Utah State Core Curriculum. I think I could create some standards-based grade level lesson plans to support outdoor learning opportunities for this program if that would be helpful. If this would work for you, I believe I could count the time spent as community service. Of course, I would have to have my supervisor (Gina Ruiz) approve it.

    Please let me know if you think this would be a good match.

    Thank you.
