Earth Day Every Day!

Posted by Kiea Wright on 5/6/2014

On Earth Day this year, students welcomed the opportunity to be stewards of our school grounds.  In the span of three hours, over three hundred of our Strawberry Point students visited the wetlands to remove invasive weeds.  They learned that by removing the weeds, they were allowing native wetland plants to thrive without competition.  They also thought it was really, really fun!  These are some comments from third graders…

“It was fun pulling weeds and chopping fennel near the wetlands.  It took a lot of team work to make it happen but it was also a lot of fun.”

Not only do we have incredibly helpful, dedicated students and teachers, but we also have amazing parents who volunteer to make these events possible at SPS.  THANK YOU so much to all of our parent volunteers!
