Our students are holding a fundraiser to raise funds to purchase the filling stations. We are offering eco-friendly (i.e. no gas, electricity, or waste) landscaping services to our community. We are working to inform the community about the need to use fewer or no plastic water bottles.
We are selling reusable water bottles to raise funds for the water bottle filler. We have campaigned to reduce plastic waste in the trash by installing recycle bins around the school. We have put "ads" on the school tv screens and the parent newsletter. We have done an interview for the the school news show. We hope to obtain a Roots and Shoots grant and obtain funds from a GO Fund Me Campaign as well.

My project will help the world stay clean and it will help these marine animal. I will do it by cleaning up my neighborhood and my community. I will also do it by doing a couple of hot chocolate stands and all of the money we earn will go to a aquarium to help these marine animals. The last thing is for you guys to help pick up trash too. I hope that you guys do pick up trash because these animals really depend on it.

To be successful in the world and the work place students must have 21st century skills. These skills include communication, collaborations, creativity, and critical thinking. Project based learning is an engaging way for students to achieve these skills. Students will research real world problems based on their Georgia Standards, then create a solution for those problems. Students will also be able to access recyclables and consumables to create prototypes of projects that will solve real world problems.
