As many of you are planning for your summer activities for your children, we want you to remember to encourage your children to read over the summer break!

Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle!!!!

J.L Lomax third graders had the opportunity to design their own pollution project. They were very creative in choosing their own environment (land, water, or air) and the pollutants that make the environment dirty. They were able to use the internet, newspapers, magazines, and any other resource. These projects were amazing!!! Students used shoebox creations, Shadow Puppet presentations, posters, water bottles, and other creative visuals. Students also had to present their projects to their class. They were able to recognize the effects of pollution and humans on the environment.
