On April 22, the first graders in Lorraine Turner’s class at Bird Rock Elementary School brought in spring blossoms made from recycled materials. The children were taught that Earth Day is to remind and encourage us of our responsibility as good citizens to value the world we live in and that the many items we use and throw away can be reused or recycled into something new and fun.
