Did you know ... EAMS students helped design and build their new outdoor classroom. The Kiwanis Outdoor Classroom at Elkhorn Area Middle School was made possible by the Elkhorn Kiwanis and numerous monetary and in-kind donations from local businesses and individuals. The outdoor classroom and science lab is the first step in the EAMS PTO’s planned outdoor learning space for the school. The building will serve as an educational tool in Green Architecture, storage for outdoor Marsh Life equipment, and allow outdoor microscope use in Life Sciences units.
