Earth Day 2014


The 3rd and 4th graders from Ft. Calhoun Elementary decided to clean up the school yard and playground. We had discussions on giving back to our school and community by volunteering. Students brought gloves, rakes, gardening tools and brooms to get the task done. Everyone enjoyed the teamwork and results when the job was complete. Mr. Dave Neumann was very appreciative of all the hard work!
