About Education Outside
Education Outside advances science education and environmental literacy by teaching outdoors in public schools. We spark children’s interest in science and connect them to the natural world through hands-on learning in school gardens. This school year, Education Outside is serving 17,500 public elementary school students in the Bay Area, with 65% of these students coming from low-income families. Our program is in 44 public schools in San Francisco, and two schools in Redwood City.

Beautiful Day (10/21)

Please mark your calendars: Beautiful Day is on October 21st, from 8:30 am -1:30 pm. This is an annual event where volunteers sign up ahead of time to work on projects at various schools in our district – including Roosevelt! Projects range from garden projects, painting, deep cleaning, spreading mulch, weeding, and more. The theme is to DO GOOD TOGETHER, and this happens as people from different Redwood City communities come together to serve our schools.

Please invite friends and family to work with you on the project of your choice. You’ll get a uniform-approved Beautiful Day shirt, lunch, and the chance to do good.
