On April 22nd, AKA Earth day, several Hood River Valley Seniors gathered in their Economics class and prepared to celebrate Earth Day in their own way. With the permission of caring teacher Matt Kennedy, the students strapped on gloves and headed outside to volunteer their time. Armed with trash bags and determined hearts, the students went about picking up trash on and around school property. For the next hour under the pleasant sun, they picked up gum, cigarette butts, plant scraps and random bits of school related trash. They even found a separated hubcap (as seen above)! In total, they managed to fill 3 trash bags full of assorted garbage from the front of the school.
The generous seniors encourage their fellow classmates to help keep our beautiful school clean, as well as the rest of the town.
