|PALS Goes to Flowers Elementary|
Flowers Elementary School in Montgomery County was the recipient of the PALS Clean Campus Program. Mary Stanford, PALS State Clean Campus Coordinator, presented a program for the students. Litter is a growing problem in our schools and community, and the Clean Campus Program involves the schools in various programs to help the schools become a cleaner and greener environment. Making students become more aware of litter and recycling is the main goal of PALS. We cannot simply litter and dump it into our environment, and then pretend it doesn’t matter.
PALS Clean Campus Program educated the students on the consequences of littering and the responsibility of doing the right thing. Awareness of littering and the damage to the environment is an important first step in keeping our schools clean and safe.
Since this was also "Dr. Seuss" week at the schools, Mary Stanford also read a story from the "Lorax."
She then asked, "What can we do to help the earth?" The book showed all different ways a student can help the earth including reducing, reusing and recycling.
