What Students Say/ Montclair Elementary School
Friday is Earth Day, what should we do to help our planet?
Dont litter and clean up after people who are bad for littering. Litter is garbage and its not healthy for the earth. I try to pick up trash and put it into the nearest trash can.
Oliver Carlson, second grade
After you eat a candy bar, dont just try and throw the wrapper in the trash, just walk to the trash and put it in there. Also, dont leave glass bottles on the beach because when I go there, I see a lot of glass bottles everywhere.
Isobel Brown, fifth grade
I think you should make a goal for yourself and pick up 20 pieces of trash each day. That way, animals wont eat it and wont die. Overall, it helps the environment.
Noelle Nokes, third grade
We could help by cleaning up the beaches, especially when theres trash that goes into the water. The animals in the water cant live as well as we can.
Keenan Reckamp, third grade
I saw people that were driving down the road that throw their cigarettes on the road and thought people should stop doing that. Also, on a hike with my mom, I saw trash along the trail and thought that people should stop leaving their trash there, too.
Kai Sina, fifth grade
I think we should ride our bikes more often instead of using our cars that use gas. Gas can pollute our air; that means we breath dirty air and not clean air.
