Community Involvement

Our 21 students on the Wellness Team did a one hour clean-up walk around our school and community. We picked up trash, empty bottles, plastic bags and lots of wrappers that were littered everywhere. We spoke to parents and children about the importance of keeping our community clean and exercising daily!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We had picker uppers, bag carriers, speakers and we all worked together as a team.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We were able to gather 6 garbage bags of trash and talk to over 30 community members in the process!

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

People continue to litter in our community and are too lazy to pick up after themselves. We will schedule a community clean up walk every other month to continue our work!
