“They not only had a good idea for raising funds, which they coordinated and followed through to fruition, but they were articulate and responsive in their presentation to support Earth Day,” said Pat Walker, Head of School. “They are a great example of leadership for our younger students.”
The students are in the process of deciding the best use of the funds they collected, such as recycling bins for classrooms or a water station to fill bottles. The students were asked to prioritize their ideas prior to meeting again. This post will be updated when their decision has been made.
“They were attentive, interested and responsive. We were all impressed with their excitement, maturity, and determination,” Ms. Walker added. Their efforts will make JCDS an even more environmentally friendly place.
