Brought to you by the MDE 

Garden Committee


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. 

Please RSVP: mdegarden@gmail.com

STEM Fair Night

(Science Technology Engineering and Math)

Formally known as the Science Night


Criteria for STEM Projects

  • Science Experiment: This is an experimental type of Science Inquiry project. It uses elements of Science and Engineering Practices, to carry out an experiment and test an idea.


  • Engineering Design: The use of scientific principles and the demonstration of creativity and ingenuity to overcome a real world problem or show a better way of doing something


  • The project should show that the student has learned something NEW!


  • Students are encouraged to work in teams and submit 1 group project


  • Failure is a natural part of the design process and experimentation, and an essential step toward creating and improved or successful solution.


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.
