Thank you to all 6th grade students and teachers who participated in our Conservation Poster & Essay Contests held during the fall of 2019. Both contests are designed to supplement the instructions on natural resources as given in the classroom. The intent is to alert students to conservation principles and measures as they relate to each student's life. It is the hope that some of these principles will be absorbed, carried forth in life, and be used by the individual for the betterment of our community.
Thank you to our teachers for teaching our young people conservation and your willingness to participate in our Poster & Essay Contest is greatly appreciated!
