West Fannin Elementary joined in the Rivers Alive Clean-up

Rebel's Corner

By, Mrs. Mary Jean Pace, 4th grade science teacher

West Fannin Elementary had the great privilege of joining in the Rivers Alive Clean-up on Saturday, September 29th. We began our morning at WFES with a safety briefing from Trout Unlimited representative, Peggy Reich, who then passed out Rivers Alive t-shirts, gloves, trash bags, and bug spray. Students from Pre-K through fifth grade, along with family members, scoured our school campus, nature trail, and stream for trash and debris.



Some of the items removed included rubber tires, a toilet tank, rusty gallon cans, foam stuffing, metal poles cemented into rubber tires, as well as plastic containers and trash. After loading the trash and debris onto a trailer, we shared a delicious lunch and dessert by the river at Tammen Park, with many of our kids enjoying a wade or swim at the boat ramp! Our WFES Rivers Alive Clean-up Day was a great success! Cleaning our campus, nature trail, and stream of rubber tires, trash, and old building debris has made West Fannin a safer and more environmentally-healthy place to learn and enjoy! Thanks again to our families who attended as well as Trout Unlimited for including West

Fannin Elementary in the 2018 Rivers Alive clean-up!
