Currently in middle school every “flex time” the students are working on their service learning projects. One of the groups, the environment group, consists of one eighth grader, three seventh graders, and three sixths graders. One seventh grader named Dominick said, “Our group is collecting cans in the hopes of winning a $100 gift card to Home Depot to use to clean up our school.”
When asked how they are doing so far, he said, “Well, I think we’re doing quite well. We already have a large trash can full of cans, and a big trash bag full of ‘em that we collected from different classrooms. I can hardly lift the trash bag; but that’s not really saying much because I’m not very strong. Oh, and in the meanwhile, we are doing our campus good by picking up so many cans and litter.”
They plan on using the money they raise to help beautify the school. One of the things they are considering is donating money towards the rose arbor that will go over the boardwalk, planting flowers, and doing some general repairs to the campus.
If you have any ideas about what to fix up, please comment on this post.
