Dutton Elementary


Project Description:
The project began with an inquiry about a watershed, which led to further questions and on-site investigations of the Dutton Community and Plaster Creek at Shady Side Park. Students studied stormwater runoff in their community and built models of their community. The learning also included a trip to the mouth of Plaster Creek.

Fostering Lifelong Stewardship:
Working with community partners has helped students see the importance of working together to achieve great things for the common good.
