8th Grade Coastal Cleanup

The 8th grade team shared this update on a special 8th grade event:

On Friday, September 23, the eighth grade participated in the worldwide event, Coastal Cleanup. Walking around the fort, beach, and parking lots at Popham Beach, we collected 2,438 cigarette butts (!), abandoned lobster traps, rubber bands, bottles, cans and miscellaneous pieces of plastic. The park ranger and several beach goers were very appreciative of the work. Data from the cleanup has been sent to the Coastal Cleanup organization which will be added to a world wide data base. 

Thanks to our students for their commitment to this work, and to our PTO for funding the colorful team, tie dye t-shirts in the photo!
