The Dutch Fork administration, custodians and Earth Club sent a truck of used books to Books for Africa in Atlanta, Georgia. This effort provides books for students who have limited access to instructional materials.
Students at St. John Neumann learned to cut and weave plastic grocery bags on pizza box looms. The “sit-upon” mats they made will be donated to Columbia’s homeless. Former students, now at Cardinal Newman HS, were on hand to help.
Students and volunteers at AC Moore Elementary School recently installed a Carolina Fence Garden on the school campus. The Carolina Fence Garden helps students learn about SC’s state symbols and provides a unique, attractive habitat for birds, insects, and other wildlife. Funding for the Fence Garden was provided by the Richland Soil and Water Conservation District through a Conservation Education Mini-Grant. Technical assistance for the project was provided by Jay Keck of the South Carolina Wildlife Federation.
