C.P. Smith fourth graders in Mr. Safran’s class and Ms. Brockway’s class recently went on a field trip to the Winooski River to work with college students from the University of Vermont Watershed Alliance to conduct water testing during which they examined the physical properties of the water and looked for the presence of macroinvertebrates. On Friday, November 2 the students presented their findings to the entire school community at our Friday Community Meeting!
Mrs. Weishaar’s second grade class is leading our efforts to recycle plastic bags and wrapping at C.P. Smith Elementary School. These hard-to-recycle items often end up as litter in our neighborhood or floating in local waterways posing a threat to marine life. Help us dispose of detrimental plastics properly by placing your refuse plastic bags and wrap in the receptacles here at C.P. Smith. The teachers use these efforts as the basis for Science and Mathematics lessons. This effort was kicked off at a recent Friday Community Meeting and to date they have recycled 60 pounds of plastic, let’s help them recycle a bunch more!
