Pleasant Hill’s Green Team has been very busy planning and building our new Outdoor Classroom. Funding was provided from memorials given in honor of John Wukits, a beloved fifth grade teacher at PHES. The outdoor classroom is in the grassy area between the yellow and red halls. The central piece of the project is a 13 by 15 foot map of the state of South Carolina created in the concrete on the ground. This beautiful piece of art was envisioned and drawn out by Art teacher, Mrs. Anya Degtyareva. The concrete work was generously donated by Mr. Jeremy Joyner, PHES parent and owner of Custom Concrete of Lexington.
The Outdoor Classroom will accommodate a full class of students, with 5 tables and umbrellas. These items are secured into the ground with concrete. We are so grateful to Sease and Nicky Bickley, PHES parents and owners of Bickley Masonry, LLC for their generous donations of this concrete work.
