PARKER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

The Parker Elementary School held a Trash a Thon to raise money for the World War II Memorial.  The students went door to door with a parent to get one time pledges.    Students then went to different areas of the community to pick up litter.  The project was integrated so that the students could learn a variety of lessons:  public relations skills by asking for pledges, math skills by adding up pledge amounts, environmental issues by determining which litter was recyclable and the safety issue of handling different types of refuse. 

Amount Raised:  $1776.20
