Earth Day Celebration|
On April 22, 1998, the Reed Middle School celebrated Earth Day by listening to speakers who addressed environmental topics such as: Backpacking, wildflowers, snakes, ground water pollution, zebra mussels and their affect on the Great Lakes, bees and pollination. We sent a group of students to sweep the beach (pick up trash). Other students used shovels and buckets to move stone to improve the appearance of paths in our nature center. Some students planted flower bulbs, some repaired the walkway and others cleaned and purified the pond in our courtyard, which was built by students. This is the fourth year that the Reed Middle School, with the cooperation of community volunteers, teachers, students and staff members has combined forces to enhance our school and community with a positive environmental impact.
