4th Grader Starts Environmental Club

BES 4th grader, Haedyn Marfell is passionate about our environment, and wants to encourage everyone to learn about ways to improve it. So much so that she had the idea to start a club called, “Save the World Around Us,” and invited a few friends to join her in this new initiative. Her teacher, Mrs. Toliver, helped her develop the concept and together they invited all interested BES 4th graders to join. To Haedyn’s surprise, over 40 students signed up even though they realized they would be giving up their lunch recess once a week to take part!

Over the next few weeks, the club will be focusing on three areas: recycling, composting, and plastics. Haedyn is thrilled to have so many friends and fellow students want to be involved in her club, and is hoping that maybe over the summer they can all stay in touch with different earth-friendly activities.
