Living Schoolyard Presentation & Discussion
Brought to you by the MDE
Thursday, January 26th, 2017
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
MDE Multi-Use Room
Join us for an engaging evening with special guest speaker Sharon Danks, founder of Green Schoolyards America and author of Asphalt to Ecosystems. Learn about the innovative ways school districts in the Bay Area and around the world are using schoolyards to create engaging, educational spaces for children while also improving the local environment.
A lively brainstorm—with participation from the audience— will follow the presentation to explore ideas for creating a living schoolyard at Mt. Diablo Elementary that supports existing educational programs, district-level nutrition, STEM and other initiatives. Come contribute your ideas on how we can transform MDE’s grounds into a living schoolyard with enriched opportunities for teaching, learning and play.
MDE K-5 families, teachers, neighbors and interested community members are invited to participate. Childcare for MDE students will be provided.
About Speaker: Sharon Danks is CEO of Green Schoolyards America, and author of Asphalt to Ecosystems. Her professional work and passion has focused on trans-forming schools into vibrant public spaces that enhance ecology, engage the community, and nurture children as they learn and play. Her current work focuses on scaling up the green schoolyard movement and integrating school ground design with green urban infrastructure planning.

This FREE Speaker Event is brought to MDE through the generous donation of the Cox Family
STEM Fair Night
(Science Technology Engineering and Math)
Formally known as the Science Night
Criteria for STEM Projects
Models, collections, reports, and demonstrations are not acceptable types of projects.
Students in grades 3-5 must use the scientific process in creating their project if they wish to participate in the MDUSD District STEM Fair. In addition, this year the district is asking for projects to have a connection to a real life, workplace situation. Other than these restrictions, your child may follow his or her own interest and may work with another child or small group. When displaying the project, please ensure that it is free standing and remember to have your name, grade, and room number clearly written and displayed on the project board.
Two projects will be selected from each grade (3rd – 5th grades only) to represent MDE at the
MDUSD District STEM Fair on March 11, 2017.
