Three years ago Tyler established a 13,000 square foot green space with garden plots, native plants, seating and play areas, and stormwater management features where there was once just a parking lot. This fall, Tyler has established a partnership with students from George Washington University to help identify ways the space may be used more effectively. You may see the GW students at Tyler around dismissal time each week, and they may ask to talk with you about the Outdoor Classroom space. If you have any questions about the GW students’ project or ideas about the Outdoor Classroom space, please contact Tyler parent Ivy Ken at or Outdoor Classroom Chair Julia Pergola at
