Third graders at Pleasant Valley were visited by Amy Gross from ALCOSAN, who shared some important information about the environment. As the students prepare for an upcoming unit on the environment, they learned about the importance of taking care of our water supply and made models of a rain garden to show the value of using water wisely. ALCOSAN encourages the use of rain barrels and rain gardens to help lessen the amount of water needing treatment from storm drains. Pictured with Gross are students in Angela Johnson’s third grade class making their gardens.
