CPE 5th graders picked up over fifty pounds of trash during our Adopt-a-Street clean-ups last week. Room 15 kids collected over eight pounds between the skate park and Pine Street, while Mrs. Torrey’s kids discovered that 2nd Street from the school to Pine is rather filthy. They gathered twenty pounds. Hadley’s class covered the longest street, Hopkins from 4th all the way to Glengrove, and they amassed over twenty pounds of mostly micro trash such as napkins, cigarette butts, and paper cups. Central Point is cleaner thanks to our fifth graders, and hopefully the kids are learning the value of not being litter bugs themselves.
