Tainter Elementary serves 262 students in grades K-4 with ages ranging from 4-10. We’re located in Rice Lake, Wisconsin. Our campus lacks green space; currently there are paved surfaces, play areas with a mixed rock/sand foundation and grassy areas bordering the remaining acreage.

Our Green Plan: The creation of a diversified green space at the front of the school building. This will empower youth in our school to be exposed to and have the opportunity for hands-on learning experiences directly related to science and citizenship lessons. This project will correlate directly with increased efforts at recycling and responsible use of limited resources so that the students, families and community we serve will see value in environmental responsibility.
