Cleveland Avenue Elementary School's mantra is Making a Clean Green Difference Within Ourselves, School and Community. We emphasize the importance of Urban Agriculture through hands-on learning experiences and real world application. Conversation about caring for the needs of others and empathy for our environment are instilled daily through Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). Our recycling initiative is centered around daily discussions about how we can make our school, community and world a better place for all. Scholars are being exposed to urban agriculture in ways that they could only imagine. Within the Cleveland Avenue Elementary (CAE) community, there is often a lack of healthy food options and alternatives so families are forced to often make unwise food choices. Scholars are able to grow and harvest their own fruits, vegetables and herbs in their classroom gardens, 2 outdoor and 4 indoor hydroponics gardens, as well as the newly planted fruit orchard. Our vision is to create a culture for healthy living and eating within the urban community.
