Big Rapids Middle School's 8th Grade Spanish class, taught by Mrs. Bowman, put our new outdoor learning space to great use. The space was created by our local Lowe's store through the "Lowe's Heroes" program and we appreciate it so much!
Thank you to Lowe's and the "Lowe's Heroes" program for their work on creating a new outdoor classroom for our Big Rapids Middle School Students!
