PALS and Billingsley School Celebrate Earth Day


PALS and Billingsley School celebrated "Earth Day" with the motto "Don’t Drop It On Alabama." Tammy Tindol, a gifted teacher at Billingsley, invited me to be part of their Earth Day celebration. Alabama PALS partnered with the school as part of the Clean Campus Program. I spoke with the students about the importance of keeping their school and community clean. The program offered an opportunity for students and faculty to be recognized for future efforts.

An educational program was presented and students participated in an activity.

The purpose of the Clean Campus Program is to implement litter education and involvement in school and community cleanup efforts.

Students learned they can make a difference. Billingsley has a greenhouse and will be using PALS as a springboard for implementing litter education in their school. All the students took an Alabama PALS clean campus pledge.
