2013-14 Winter Clean-up
Our Adopt-a-Street Clean-up often looks more like an Easter egg hunt than a litter patrol. We split our class into small groups which compete to see who can collect the most garbage. Our first clean-up of the 2012-13 school year netted 31.5 pounds of trash off from along the Hopkins Street sidewalks! A special thanks to all the parents who volunteered to join us. Without your assistance, this activity would be impossible to manage. The Adopt-a-Street Clean-up is one of many community-service projects we hope to undertake this year. Stay tuned for others as the school year continues.
Room 15 Kids have are keeping Hopkins Avenue clean as part of the City of Central Point’s Adopt-a-Street program. Our first event took place on November 4th. Hoping to clean-up after Halloween litterbugs, the kids collected 32 pounds of trash. We followed it up with another clean-up on February 11th, this time collecting 26.5 pounds. Our third clean-up is tentatively scheduled for April.
