Come Grow with Us
The power of a seed...
We are building a greenhouse which will let kids explore, learn and grow while playing in the dirt. Now, more then ever, kids need that!
Our students will developed practical, valuable life skills and gain new perspectives on food. Creating a living classroom will allow over 400 students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 to apply knowledge in a hands on environment. No other school in our community will have this kind of learning space and opportunity. Lessons learned will permeate across all grades and curricular areas.
This project is also unique in that it will support research into leading edge passive solar building technologies that will reduce the carbon footprint through a sustainable, replicable, low impact and cost effective four season green house. This will provide strong links to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) teaching and learning.
This project will also create lasing partnerships with local businesses and organizations such as Federate Co-op, The Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), Scott Builders, ReThink Red Deer, the Normandeau Community Association, as well as provide a space for the community to use and enjoy.

We are very excited to have this project come to life for the 2022/2023 school year.
This is a project of the Foundation for Red Deer Public Schools. If you wish to be involved, or would like more information, please call Normandeau School or the Foundation Office at 403-342-3751.
