Third Grade Class: A Winner in National Contest
April 19th, 2012
Mrs. Bahnck’s Third Grade class has been named the Pennsylvania state winner in this year’s Disney Planet Challenge, an environmental and science competition for Third-Eighth Grade classrooms. Their project “Litter Stinks,” focused on litter clean-up around the city and fundraising for Hug it Forward, an organization that builds schools in Guatemala from plastic bottles stuffed with litter. On April 19, 2012, the class made an official announcement to the Lower and Upper School students. To honor their project and Earth Day, many classes picked up litter on the blocks surrounding the school.
