Crafts, science experiments, reading aloud, and a special conservation project were all on the agenda as the WHS Key Club spent April 22 - Earth Day - with BRP students from Pre-K through second grade. BRP students enjoyed making Earth Day crowns and necklaces, planting seeds, learning about the water cycle, and making their own water filtration "tank" with Key Club members. Afterward, everyone shared a picnic lunch on the playground, and the teens helped pick up litter along BRP's walking trail before they departed. Thank you to these Key Club members for teaching our younger students the true meaning of Earth Day! 🌳🌿🌎

Some BRE kindergarteners enjoyed a special visit from George Mickey of the Jefferson County Historical Society! Mr. Mickey shared Native American artifacts with the class and relayed the fascinating stories behind them as told by the people who discovered them. The students were enthralled and loved touching the items they studied in their Native American unit!
