 In the Rose Garden

The Rose Garden was planted in memory of Rose Barrett, former principal of South Elementary school.  

The Rose Garden houses much more than our beautiful roses.
Bird houses and bird feeders attract our area birds. We have a
"critter condo" (8 x 8 foot structure) that is home to our red hens.
Our hens produce fresh eggs for us to use in our student kitchen.
Turtles and native rabbits and our famous pet rabbit, Oreo make their
home in the Rose Garden also

We're Outside!

Outdoor Classrooms- HWES is very fortunate to have THREE outdoor classrooms.

Vegetable Garden: Our veggie garden is equipped with 8 raised garden
beds that stay full of seasonal garden fruits and vegetables to be used in
cooking activities in our student kitchen. It also features a large
green house to promote year around growing. The students ARE the
farmers ! They plant, care-give and harvest.

Sensory Garden- Our Sensory Garden is our newest courtyard that is under
construction this year. It will feature an outdoor kitchen, herb and
flower beds, bird baths, benches and rain barrels.

  Bio Lab

Bio lab- The Bio Lab is a student science lab equipped with state of the art science equipment. Students, grades 2nd – 6th, attend Bio Lab class 40 minutes each week.
Subjects and topics covered in bio lab are science based and enhance our magnet theme by focusing on gardening, cooking and science experiments.

Not just about the Earth....We love our Animals

 The study of animals at HWES is a very important and rewarding
experience for our students. It allows us to tie how environmental
issues affect the living creatures of ecosystems. It also gives hands
on approach to teaching about animal’s needs and adaptations. We have
several different animals that make their home at HWES: bearded dragon,
gecko, fish, tarantula, cockatiel, parakeets and frogs.
We have expanded our animal department into the outdoor classroom to
include turtles, rabbits and chickens.

HWES teachers are very dedicated to using our outdoor classrooms, student kitchen and Life Lab curriculum to integrate our theme into Arkansas State Frameworks. The results are highly engaged lessons and activities that interest and challenge our students.

We have a strong interest in involving our community in our mission to educate our students. We would love to have guest speakers in the area of health and environmental issues and guest chefs to share their knowledge and gifts. If interested, please contact Melinda Smith.
