    • Litter Day for Earth Day

    • Tuesday, April 23 was Litter Day in Kim Osman’s Fourth Grade classroom at the Montevideo Middle School. Students are allowed to throw everything they’d normally put in garbage or recycling on the floor, to show them just how quickly garbage can add up if everyone doesn’t contribute to keeping things clean. Osmon said she tries to teach students that every day can be Earth Day, and that thinking about keeping the environment clean shouldn’t end. When asked if they thought a Litter Day would be a good idea for everyone outside, the students were pretty certain that would have some bad results. At the end of the day, students discovered how quickly a mess could be picked up when everyone helped.
