SCHS Students To Pick Up Trash As Part of Earth Day
Principal John Boles says every home room will participate between eight and nine next Tuesday morning. "It is not only going to be the school grounds, but the Bryan Memorial Park and the area around the community center. We appreciate all the supplies people have donated. Rubber gloves, trash bags. hand picker uppers. We're excited. We hope the weather will hold out for us on Tuesday. But I think it will give our kids a sense of community service," said Boles.
Boles says it will also give the school a chance to give back to the community. If the weather is inclement next Tuesday, students will stay inside and learn more about earth day in a classroom setting.
