Edgewood Students Helping our Environment

The ECO (environmental consciousness organization) Club from Edgewood Middle School meets weekly to plan green initiatives for the school.  At the beginning of October the ECO members met to pick apples from the tree in the outdoor classroom.  Last spring our librarian, Carolyn Lorence, passed away. The outdoor classroom was made in her honor.

The ECO students came in, outside of school, hours to prepare caramel apples to sell at lunch.  The group raised more than $180.00 to fund sustainable plants for Carolyn’s Classroom and future Green projects at the school.  We are proud of our students!
