Matteson, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Administrators at St. Lawrence O’Toole grade school announced that they are accepting registration for the 2010-11 school year.
The school provides students with hands-on learning experiences with special concentration in energy sources. Students recently completed a wind study to determine if their school would be a good candidate for a wind turbine. Students tracked wind speeds, built wind turbines and investigated the necessary conditions for optimal energy production.
In addition, students studied native plants and have planted and nourished two native plant gardens.
The two studies have given students a global outlook and an understanding of the effects people have on the environment.
The Blue Ribbon School, which offers an affordable Early Childhood Program is now accepting registration for the 2010-2011 school year. More information about the school is available at 4101 St. Lawrence Avenue, Matteson, IL, (708) 747-3322, or by visiting the school’s Web site.
