A ground breaking ceremony is planned tomorrow in Redding on an outdoor space for school children.  Project COOL, which stands for Create an Oasis for Outdoor Learning, will see an outdoor amphitheater constructed on the south side of John Read Middle School.  The outdoor learning space will have seating for 50 students and a small pavilion.  The school district says the goal is to blend the classroom with the environment, giving students more time in nature.  The pavilion will be a pre-engineered structure and the project will be completed in two phases.  The first is to clear a wooded area and level out the land.  The pavilion is not expected to be installed until next year due to material backorders.  About $32,000 of the $50,000 cost has been raised to date.
