4th graders remodel outdoor classroom

Fearless, strong, and not intimidated by hard work, that’s how the 4th graders at Sharpe Elementary in Marshall County will be remembered.

They held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for their outdoor classroom on Monday and what it looks like now is nothing like it did before.

The ice storm and years of neglect made the space unusable.

Fourth grade teacher Shannon Hamlet says when the students found out about it, they were determined to clean it up.

"They know that they’re leaving a legacy. They’re able to make this where other students they aren’t even in Sharpe yet, can come out here and learn," said Hamlet.

Even more impressive, the students lead the way on the project.

They came up with the plans, who to contact for big jobs that needed tools, and even helped write the news release letting us know about the ribbon cutting.
