Earth Day 2004

By Staff
Area schools work to make the environment better
Danville-Neel Elementary School fourth grade student council members Alexis Culp, Bayleigh Biddle and Keri Callahan were busy spreading mulch on Earth Day in a continuing effort to beautify their school campus. Through a Morgan County Volunteer Lend-A-Hand grant and a portion of a $1,000 Weyerhaeuser Company Foundation Excellence in Recycling Award, Litter Patrol and student council members bought and spread 32 loads of mulch on campus. This is the third consecutive year DNES has been selected as one of 10 schools across the state to receive the Weyerhaeuser award.
Students and faculty at Falkville Elementary School celebrated Earth Day by sprucing up the campus. Each grade adopted an area. Present flower beds were weeded, new plants planted, and mulch added. Decorative stone borders were added to many of the flower beds. Kindergartener Zach Brown is exhausted after the afternoon work and falls asleep as Emily Gray and Emalee Hopper rest and try to decide if that is a good idea. They are all in Dana Speegle's room.
Hartselle Utilities and the Hartselle Beautification Association teamed up during Earth Day week for a presentation at E.A.R.T.H. Park for Hartselle Junior High School sixth grade students. Brad Boles with the Flint Creek Watershed, Jay Lawrence and Jeff Kirby of Hartselle Utilities presented the program. Each student received a 2004 Earth Day T-shirt, compliments of HBA and sponsored by Hartselle area businesses. Also for Earth Day, Barkley Bridge Elementary School fifth graders painted flowerpots at E.A.R.T.H. Park to be placed downtown.
