Press Release, Orleans/Niagara BOCES
MEDINA – Orleans/Niagara BOCES students from the Orleans Learning Center headed out to Lions Park in Medina to lend a hand in honor of Earth Day.
Teacher Kim Wiley and her class have been discussing the significance of Earth Day and decided they would like to do something to honor the day. The students headed to the park, armed with trash grabbers and trash bags, and spent a sunny afternoon cleaning up litter from the canal area.
“We had a great day,” says Mrs. Wiley. “When we got back to our classroom the students all wrote about how helping out made them feel. They all said they were happy to do their part and liked being outdoors.”
