Our project will be to put art on the storm drains, put screens cover them, have trash cans around them, have poop bags provide for the community to prevent contamination of the water, and have trash compacters installed where trash cans commonly get over filled. We will do all this by first taking pictures of the main visible storm drains around our school. We will make a map and pick the ones that get the most foot action. We will contact the city about getting permission to do art on the storm drains. We will start small to get some awareness on what we are doing. Once we hit our first storm drains we will then expand our efforts toward the other issues by reaching out to our local city council member, church, Play Ground of Dream (POD) and Youth Policy Institute (YPI) for more support.

This year, we are focused on teaching our community about the agriculture and it's impact in our area. Our students have started to plan a community fair so that they can invite community members and families to learn about our community and it's agricultural history and influence. We will invite some of the speakers that we have used over the years to help present this information. Our school will have this fair as a half day during school hours so that our Roots & Shoots members can teach our school community all that they've learned. We will continue it into the evening so that families and the community can attend. This will also allow us to teach our community about our outdoor classroom that our Roots & Shoots members are helping to plan and build for our school.
