To celebrate Earth Day 2021, our high school prep students (6th-8th graders) went to Wilson Park in Portage Park to clean up the trash and leaves around the park. Once they arrived, they divided into groups of five and spread out around the park. Students either weeded the garden, picked up trash, or raked leaves. It was a nice day to be outside and the students enjoyed making the park beautiful!
Thank you to the Wilson Park staff for overseeing the event as well as for teaching our students how to use the various tools! They had a fun time at this outing!
