Altha School celebrated Wildcat Purpose Day - Earth Day - last Friday, March 18.
Each year senior government classes are required to perform a community service project. This year they chose to focus on environmental issues and conservation. Under the direction of Governement instructor, Ms. Jackie Humphreys, they spent several months contacting federal, state, and local agencies and business to make this event a success. The seniors brought in people to talk to the students at Altha. They had hands-on projects such as making bird feeders out of two liter bottles and drawing HELP THE ANIMALS signs.
We would like to thank the organizations that participated and helped to make the day such a success: Oglesby Plants International, Environmental Protection Agency, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation, Calhoun County Recycling Department, and the Florida Division of Forestry. Students and teachers all had a blast learning about our environment and how to make it better.
