    Litter Prevention:  Litter-Free FMS

    Summary- Students will participate in twice monthly litter patrols of our school grounds. They will collect any litter and monitor areas with large amounts of debris. This will help to keep our school grounds clean and prevent pollution from getting into our water sources.

    Education Components- We will learn about the best ways to prevent litter and to promote clean school grounds.

    Students will encourage others to keep our school free of litter by having contests for litter collection days.

    Future Goals- Our science club hopes to promote schoolwide litter awareness and to participate in larger litter clean up days in the community, possibly to lead a larger community wide litter clean up.
