Students Making a Difference

The Glen Park community hosted their monthly meeting at Glen Park Elementary school on April 3, 2019. District 8 City Councilmember Kelly Allen Gray presented along with 2 of our very own 2nd grade students!

It all started when Yvonne, Leah, and another classmate discussed the litter they saw around the school and community. They decided to persuade other students and community members to improve the situation by not throwing trash down. They took it another step and want to encourage people to pick up the litter they see in the neighborhood.  

We are so proud of these girls for seeing a problem and taking on the challenge to make it better. Their efforts are a great example of what we can all do to make our community a better place to live and learn.
