WELCOME TO HART MAGNET SCHOOL!!
OUR NEW PROJECT AT HART MAGNET IS THE SCHOOL YARD HABITAT!!!! We have been selected by the US FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE along with the GREENWICH AUDUBON to create and construct a school yard habitat that all students can enjoy and appreciate. Students were introduced to several designs for the front and back of the school building. Representatives of the US FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE and GREENWICH AUDUBON shared their ideas with students as part of our College for Every Student (CFES) program. Our guests shared information on their careers as scientists, environmentalists and park rangers. They came from all parts of the country including Alaska and Puerto Rico. In addition, we will continue to plan and co-ordinate with the MILL RIVER COLLABORATIVE. We will keep you posted on this exciting project!
