Pictures from 1998
Grand View School kindergarten
children in the classrooms of Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Shepherd and 3rd grade
students in Mr. Goss' class decorated 75 grocery bags while they learned
about recycling, conservation and environmental awareness. Eighth grade
girls helped the kindergarten children. Reasor's Grocery Store gave us the
bags and they will sack groceries in them on Earth Day, April 22, to pass
along the message to their shoppers. We would like to thank Mr. Ahlness
for a wonderful project which we learned about by using the Internet. This
is the first time we are joining with schools all over the world to do a
classroom project with an Internet component.
Comments about Earth Day from Mr. Goss' 3rd Graders:
Kyle: "Pollution is bad for people, animals, and everything on the Earth."
Alex: "I told my Mom about our Earth Day Project. I told her the Earth is very big with many countries, and we have to take care of it."
Jordan A: "Keep our planet clean so the animals can breathe."
Matt: "We can make a difference. We should take care of our Earth now, so it will be good for the future when we are old." Jeremy: "I think that cleaning up the Earth would help our environment."
Jordan H.: "People should stop polluting the Earth so we can live longer."
Brandon: "We need to recycle."
Mr. Goss: "Hug a tree. Save a life."
